I remember my mother, the science teacher, telling me about Liberty Science Center in the 90s. She was excited about this new local spot that would offer science experiences for both kids and adults. It was less than an hour away from NYC, but the timing never seemed right, and we never got to visit Liberty Science Center as kids, but it was always something I wanted my kids to experience. Last week we were invited to see the new Doc McStuffins Exhibit, as well as the Sherlock Holmes exhibit at the Liberty Science Center. My middle daughter is six years old and still loves Doc McStuffins, so I knew she would love the interactive experience.
The ride from NYC was short, as expected. It took about 45 minutes to arrive at Liberty Science Center where we were treated to a special media breakfast, courtesy of Mom Trends. After everyone was settled in, the kids participated in a super-fun ice cream making experience, and then after they learned about the laws of physics with toilet paper shooters. The giggles and squeals coming from both adults and kids proved that you’re never too old for some fun learning.
We roamed around Liberty Science Center where we stopped by the Doc McStuffins Exhibit. The term “exhibit” doesn’t do it justice- this massive space is filled with multiple Doc-themed centers where you can dress up as Doc, make a doctor bag, and go from station to station taking care of your baby or your pet. The entire experience is interactive and perfect for kids from walking age all the way up through 10 years old.
We stopped by the bubble exhibits, used our senses to climb through a pitch-black tunnel, and saw a holiday-themed laser light show in the planetarium. My first experience of the Liberty Science Center exceeded my expectations, and I will definitely be attending again with my other kids. While the kids are off from school for Christmas break, why not head over to the Liberty Science Center where they can learn while having fun!?
