Built for the 1964 World’s Fair, and recently expanded, the Hall of Science demystifies its subject through colorful hands-on exhibits, with topics such as Marvelous Molecules and the Realm of the Atom. In summer, children can burn off their excess energy—and perhaps learn a thing or two—in the 30,000-square-foot outdoor science playground.
