If you plan to vacation in Jersey City, New Jersey, the Liberty Science Center is something that you will not want to miss.

Permanent Exhibits
Liberty Science Center has a wide range of activities for children of all ages and adults too. The slightly older children may enjoy the Infinity Climber, which is a fun course that has multiple suspended pathways as high as 35 feet above the floor. Younger children will enjoy the Block Party. This blue block park has oversized foam blocks that children can use to build, stack up, knock them down, and do it again.

School-age kids will enjoy the pixel art installation that allows them to create their own work of art by turning various pixels to different colors. It is an excellent introduction to how a computer screen works. The Touch Tunnel allows children to navigate through a tunnel in complete darkness. It builds a greater appreciation for how much we use our sight to navigate around the world. 

The Science Center is not just for kids. It has something for adults too. Sure House is a state-of-the-art model house that is the future in storm resistance and energy efficiency. You can also get to know about your relationship with the local environment at the Our Hudson Home exhibit.
