  • Went with my two young adults and my 10 year old child during Christmas break had lots of fun. Touch tunnel is great for child, need to make a walking one for adults, my knees hurt. Lots of activities, with all money paid they need to make sure exhibit and activities are up to date and working! But we had lots of fun the holiday light show was spectacular, loved singing along even though most crowd was just watching, those on the Mike did very well encouraging the crowd to join in singing and clapping! Food is a little pricey but good. Had a very good time! Shouldn't have to pay for parking, just a suggestion!
  • We arrived on good Friday and we met with large crowds at most of the exhibits. We bought the family membership since we knew we'd be back. There is just too much to see in one day. We saw the sesame street themed shoe in the planetarium and were blown away at the size of the seating area inside. There really is no bad seats. Wish the prices for the planetarium shows were more reasonable. You get 6 free passes for shows with the family membership we purchased but after that...nothing except when you renew.
  • This place is simply amazing. The location is in the coast of hudson river and across New york city skyline. There are tons of things to be done and seen by adults as well as kids. Lots of experiments go on at various places inside. They have an awesome dome theater too. Kids would also love the Thomas train exhibit. They have star trek section for star trek fans. oh i can go on and on. Visit once to experience it.
  • My friends and I went for the Star Trek Academy Experience and it was awesome. Go early because the center gets busier after 12. Easy to get to and ample parking with a reasonable rate - $7. You can also see the Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty from a balcony on the third floor.
  • I took my young daughter here and saw the Big Bird show at the newly renovated planetarium. The activities were engaging and the museum is expansive. It is modern and fresh. The planetarium is impressive and state of the art. Definitely will go back.
