A museum for kids that adults will love
The New York Hall of Science is supposed to be a children’s museum, but there’s so much to explore and see here that you will find many adults visit on their own, without kids and without shame. Everything in this museum is made to be touched; in fact, you can’t really experience the place at all unless you’re willing to play around with things. From an airplane propeller you can work by pedaling around to a 3D model of an atom, this is a place where learning doesn’t sound like work at all. one of my favorite places is the outdoor playground, which works only during the summer. While adults can’t actually climb the attractions, there is still a lot to see and experience. The outdoor playground covers a total of 60,000 square feet and it has fun elements related to sound, movement, balance and wind energy. You can even create your own whirlpool and tornado.
Call in advance to find out what day they’re offering free admission to the museum (it varies from month to month). [more]
