Experience the excitement of liquid nitrogen explosions

Liberty Science Center is back with a bang! Join us for our new Boom Time show, where we show off controlled explosions several times throughout the day.

All the action takes place in our one-of-a-kind, 57-square-foot movable safe room made of polycarbonate walls (the same material used for bullet-proofing).

Experience the excitement of liquid nitrogen explosions as we blow up things like watermelons, bouncy balls, pumpkins, and more.
