NYSCI presents more than 450 interactive displays that explain science and demystify the world.

We have more than 100,000 square-feet of indoor exhibition space, plus our outdoor 60,000 square-foot Science Playground and Rocket Park, where you can not only get an up-close view at vintage Atlas and Titan rockets, but also experience a nine-hole miniature golf course that shows how mini-golf really is rocket science.
