NY Hall of Science

Located in one of the original structures built for the 1964 New York World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, it is New York’s only science and technology center that gives visitors a truly hands-on experience.

Explore with All Your Senses

The museum incorporates over 450 permanent exhibits which are organized into a variety of intriguing subjects including Hidden Kingdoms, Realm of the Atom, Seeing the Light, Marvelous Molecules and much more. Expect to utilize all your senses when exploring these exhibits.

Understand Birds in Decline

The feature exhibit which will be on view until August 14th is called “The Sweet-Voiced Bird Has Flown: Portraits of Common Birds in Decline.” This is an art exhibit featuring paintings and monochrome sketches of a variety of bird species whose numbers are in decline.

NYSCI also has exhibitions on tour, including ‘Charlie Kiwi’s Evolutionary Adventure,’ ‘Molecules and Health,’ and ‘Wild Minds-What Animals Really Think.’
