Liberty Science Center is definitely worth visiting. Whether it's the various exhibits or demonstrations or IMAX theater you will leave there knowing more than when you walked in. Great informed staff .

I have been going there since my son was 2 and there is always something to do. He can go see the animal to the sports activities, ball room and the traveling exhibit is always fun.
