The New York Hall of Science

The New York Hall of Science features the city's largest collection of hands-on science and technology exhibits. Originally built as a pavilion for the 1964-65 World's Fair, the Hall of Science is now ranked as one of the top ten science museums in the country. Visitors can explore more than 160 interactive exhibits including a microbe zoo, soap bubbles big enough to step through, a distorted room where people appear to shrink or grow, and machines that change your voice from a roar to a squeak. Visitors will discover a bigger and better New York Hall of Science since the museum recently opened its $13 million expansion to the public. The award-winning expansion -- the biggest ever at the Hall of Science -- includes a new entrance, a 300-seat auditorium, a large lunch room, a new Technology Gallery linking the public with the Internet and today's high-tech wonders, and the Window on the Universe, a 16-screen videowall that brings visitors a wealth of astronomical images from on-line observatories to live NASA missions.
The New York Hall of Science is located at 47-01 111th Street in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, NY 11368. Hours: Wed-Sun, 10am-5pm. Admission: $4.50 adults, $3 children and seniors. For more information call (718) 699-0005.
