Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey, encourages interest in science and technology through interactive exhibits and toyetic installations.
The facility first opened in 1993 and undertook an expansion in 2007 that increased its square footage by 30 per cent. Inside its current 300,000 square feet is the largest planetarium in the Western Hemisphere; Beyond Rubik’s Cube, the first-ever exhibit dedicated to the 3D puzzle; and, the Lite-Brite-esque Pixel Art interactive wall installation. Visitors can explore twelve exhibit halls, each with its own focus and approach to science education.
Liberty Science Center hosts several opportunities for curious young learners, including online learning programs, birthday parties, camp ins, and LSC Junior Days for children under six years of age.
