Thinking about a winter day trip from NYC? This weekend is the perfect time to head out east to explore the new Long Island Science Center

The STEM-focused attraction, which will earn a spot on your family's list of go-to kids' museums, is officially up and running in its new 2,000-square-foot space, which is located at 40 Peconic Ave in Riverhead. After a two-year hiatus and a temporary space, patrons are anxious to have this permanent venue at the ready. If your little scientists are eager to learn about new fields, you'll be anxious to know exciting features await. 

“The Long Island Science Center, with all new interactive exhibits, is challenging and engaging children and adults in science, technology, art and innovation," Larry Oxman, president of the center’s board, said in a statement. "It is so rewarding to see the smiles and expressions of visitors as they experience the new hands-on exhibits." 

So what can visitors look forward to? Check out some of the museum's coolest features below and start mapping out your list of things to do with kids this weekend

The Illumination Station 

Simply put, it's "lit"! What kid (or adult) will refuse to create something colorful on an eight-foot-wide interactive Lite Brite?
