Don’t Call It A Museum

At NYSCI, science is more than gazing at exhibits from behind a velvet rope. It needs to be touched, moved — experienced.

We invite you to think beyond lab coats and Bunsen burners and discover the hidden world of science in things all around us.

EXHIBITS

In addition to the more than 450 interactive displays that demystify the science all around us, NYSCI also presents seasonal featured art and science exhibits that engage and delight people of all ages.

PROGRAMS

Through live shows, events, festivals, and workshops, we bring science to you by making it fun and engaging. From young kids to adults, there's something for everyone.
