Family Friendly Museum in New Jersey

Spring is here and summer vacation won’t be long behind. Get ready to plan some memorable and educational experiences for the younger set! If you are looking for a family friendly museum in New Jersey, be sure to visit the Liberty Science Center – a premiere NJ Science Museum. There is something for all ages to enjoy, experience and learn about at the museum which is sure to make for a fun day out.

There are a variety of Liberty Science Center exhibits to look forward to. Young children between the ages of 2 – 5 will love the I Explore gallery. For slightly older children between the ages of 5 – 10, there is the Infection Connection where they can dress for surgery at the “Be A Surgeon” exhibition or they may prefer to create a six-foot high bubble in the Wonder Why exhibition. Many kids love donning construction gear in order to operate the mini front loader and electromagnetic crane in Skyscraper which will have them learning all day long. For older guests who prefer in-depth exploration, there are real science experiences, like the Infection Connection Lab where you can take part in experiments such as isolating wheat DNA. Some other fun to explore includes: 

  • Sid The Science Kid
