Description

Village Voice's Description

Far off the beaten Museum Mile, it's easy to forget that Corona's Hall of Science is one of the greats. It features 450 exhibits and is geared toward participatory activities that explain science, technology, and math to kids and the large portion of the adult population that doesn't understand those things yet either. Built in1964 as part of the ever-eerily futuristic World's Fair, it was one of the first ever purely science museums in existence. A short trek for Queens residents, a longer trek for others, it sits on the edge of Flushing Meadows Corona Park near the 7 train.

Merchant's Description

    Great place to take kids, with lots of hands on exhibits. Not a boring type science museum, even if you had to drag the kids there, once they're having fun inside you'll have to drag them out when you want to leave.

Tips from foursquare

    Play a round of Rocket Park Mini Golf while you're here. Each hole demonstrates science concepts that NASA uses to explore space, like propulsion, gravity, escape velocity & more. A fun way to learn!

  • The Corcoran Group on 12/12/11

    A perfect place for the family to spend an afternoon – play an educational round of mini golf or let the kids frolic in the playground. It’s definitely crowded during the weekends.

    #StaffPick Lauren (Education): This is a great place for parents. Why? Kids of a wide age range (around 2 - 12) are so engaged. As a parent, it's a very low key, stress free place to take your kids.

    If you bring your kids to the NY Hall of Science, be sure to check out the wildly inventive playground right outside.
