I don’t know any kid who doesn’t like Dora or Diego or a super interactive exhibition at a cool museum. The Liberty Science Center is probably the biggest science museum in the NYC-Metro area. Located in NJ is just a hop across the tunnel to a world of super interactive fun. We went for the first time and I was super excited. Our kids love the NY Hall of Science so I knew they would love the LSC. What I didn’t know was how much. It took hours to convince them to leave.
The reason for our visit was to check out the new Dora & Diego Let’s Explore!. The exhibition is SUPER interactive. There are several stations where kids can play pretend pirate, control a rocket ship, take care of a garden, work on a science lab and get some work outs in with a climbing wall. As part of our blogger event, the kids got back packs with a monkey a pen with flashlight and a map. Part of the idea of the exhibition is for the kids to go through the museum and get stickers at different parts to finish their quest.
Each station has different engaging activities for the kids. In the pirate ship, Pirate Piggies’ Ship, there is a coin counter, and I can’t even tell you how hard it was to get the kids to actually move and see the other parts of the exhibition. After the pirate ship they moved in to the rocket ship, Journey to the Purple Planet, where they pressed every single button available and watch a space video. The kids were very so excited. Seriously it was perfect for my little one as well as my 5-year-old. I have to say my favorite part was Isa’s Flowery Garden. This is definitely more suited to the little tots as it is enclosed. The best part was the flowers and pretend water cans and tools. Best of all the flower has scent! They smelled like real flowers.
My kids favorite part in the exhibition was the physical activity station, which is called the Rainforest Maze. They had monkey bars and a climbing wall. My sons have never tried the monkey bars at any playground so this was the perfect setting for them.
The exhibition run through January 24th of 2016 so there’s plenty of time to check it out during the winter. These are the perfect places to bring the kids during the winter, because it will entertain them to no end and it’s warm. The museum also has different exhibitions including live animals, fish and a toddler kid area. There’s an IMAX theater with different features.
I was so impressed. I knew this would be awesome and it did not disappoint. And for the kids it was even more awesome. I was finally able to leave after bribing them that we would come back very soon. I should mention the center has a huge cafeteria with everything from pizza to salads.
So know you know if you are looking for something to do during any of the holidays you can visit the Liberty Science Center. Dora & Diego Explore! is perfect for the whole family. And know you can win tickets for your family! Just follow the instructions! Good luck.
