Now Open!

Liberty Science Center is open, and we can't wait to see you! Click here to get tickets now.

With our reopening comes new and returning adventures for the whole family. Soar through space in one of our new planetarium presentations. Conquer the Infinity Climber, a suspended climbing play space that's 19 feet tall. Visit our animals (they’ve missed you!) including the naked mole rats, cotton-top tamarin monkeys, and dozens more. I Explore, our bright, engaging space for kids under 6, has just reopened. Embark on a prehistoric adventure and discover the world of dinosaurs in SUE. the T. rex Experience. Buckle up and race with the most famous toy vehicles on the planet in Hot Wheels: Race to Win.

Don't forget to check out our new programs, like Boom Time. Join us as 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.

Below, please review our protocols to keep everyone safe and healthy during your adventure at the Science Center:

Wear a face mask

For everyone's safety, especially those too young to be vaccinated, guests must properly wear an approved mask. This policy applies to all guests over age 2, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin. Neck gaiters, bandannas, and masks with one way air valves are not acceptable.

Keep a safe distance

Guests must stay at least six feet away from other guests and LSC staff. We recommend leaving strollers and bulky items home, as lockers are closed and elevator capacity is limited.

Stay home if you’re sick

For the health and safety of yourself and others, we ask guests to stay home if you have a fever or cough, are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, have recently traveled to a hot spot state, or have a known or potential exposure to COVID-19 within the last 14 days. You must reschedule your ticket for another day (by calling 201.253.1310) as you won't be permitted to enter the Science Center.

Keep your hands clean

We’ve created fun and safe new experiences

Our team has worked hard to create fun new COVID-safe experiences. For everyone’s safety, some exhibitions will be adjusted or temporarily closed. Our planetarium will be open at reduced capacity.

reopen icon_sanitizer.png

We’ve increased daily disinfecting and sanitizing protocols

There will be special attention paid to highly trafficked areas and high-touch surfaces throughout the building and its exhibits.

reopen icon_temp check.png

We’re doing temperature checks

Guests and staff must participate in onsite health screenings, including temperature taking when entering the building. If you register as 100.4°F or higher, your party will have to return another time.

reopen icon_air.png

We’ve improved air quality in the building

LSC is a 300,000-square-foot facility with large open rooms. All of the air filters have been changed and upgraded to a quality exceeding the CDC recommendation. We’ve also optimized our air handling system and increased its run times to allow for significantly more air exchanges, bringing more fresh air from outside into the facility more often throughout the day.

reopen icon_capacity.png

We're limiting total capacity in the building

We’re limiting total capacity to less than 25% to help guests maintain distance. We ask that you please purchase tickets online in advance, as many of our time slots and theater shows sell out fast.
