  • I joined the Hall of Science for my grandchildren. I noticed that Liberty Science Center does not have a reciprocal agreement to visit, however, they do allow 4 visits a year and those dates are documented. It seems to me when you have such a wonderful science center, that they would want people to visit more frequently. It's not child friendly at all. Too bad!

  • Be forewarned about the LSC. We've been on numerous occasions (though not, admittedly, in a year), and every single time, were disappointed. I kept trying because the place seems like it should be great (especially because, as a resident of NJ, I helped foot the huge bill for its renovation!). And it does have potential. I mean, it's a great space with lots of funding. What makes the place merely mediocre is the staff. (Again, if they've vastly improved in the past year, mea culpa.) At nearly EVERY exhibit, the docents were lackadaisical, at best, talking on their phones, joking around with each other, to the point that when I asked a question, they just sort of shrugged and yawned. Big turn off and, frankly, a big waste of taxpayer money (and a chance to turn kids on to science).
