We visited over the weekend with 5 young children (baby - 6 years old) and they all enjoyed themselves. We were able to spend time at each exhibit and have some fun learning experiences.

This place is absolutely cool. It's smaller than many science museums like Liberty science center, but 1- it's much better organized in many ways, 2 - it's never-ever as crowded as museums closer to NYC. We went there twice in three months and a bunch...More

Da Vinci Science Center is a great place for young children. We took our grandchildren and they were facinated by the displays and especially the hands-on atmosphere where they could actually touch and play with the displays.

A little expensive for what they have to offer. We took my 3 year old who likes science and there was not a lot for her there but she did have a good time. It is easy to do in just a couple of hours.

It was a school trip, we had over 30 kids, all 4th graders. There were birthday parties there at the same time and they were for about 10 or 12 kids. All in all, it's well run and they keep things organized and moving... More
