Our Mission

To inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers and excite learners of all ages about the power, promise, and pure fun of science and technology.

Liberty Science Center (LSC.org) is a 300,000-square-foot learning center located in Liberty State Park on the Jersey City bank of the Hudson near the Statue of Liberty. The Science Center houses 12 museum exhibition halls, a live animal collection with 110 species, giant aquariums, a 3D theater, live simulcast surgeries, hurricane- and tornado-force wind simulators, K-12 classrooms and labs, teacher-development programs, and the Western Hemisphere's largest and most technologically advanced planetarium—the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium and LSC Giant Dome Theater. More than 650,000 students, teachers, and parents visit Liberty Science Center each year, and tens of thousands more participate in the Center's off-site and online programs.
