Looking for your next great group outing? Or maybe you’re traveling to NYC on vacation or business and want to find a local attraction to visit? Well, the list of NYC things to do could go on and on, but today our staff at Empire Rent A Car would like to highlight the NY Hall of Science (NYSCI).

NY Hall of Science in QueensAbout NYSCI

Located in the heart of Queens, NYSCI is a great destination for individuals, families, school groups, teachers, and more to explore the world of science, technology, engineering, and math. This museum has over 450 hands-on exhibits, demonstrations, events, displays, and more. Each one is designed to engage visitors with the scientific world and awaken their curiosity.

A few of the current exhibits at NYSCI include:

  • Journey to Space 3D
  • Tiny Giants
  • Little Makers: Rockin’ Rockets
  • And more

They feature both permanent displays as well as rotating or seasonal exhibits (like holiday favorite Gingerbread Lane). You will also want to check out their current list of public programs for an even more interactive experience.

Getting There

NYSCI is located in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, next to some other great attractions like the Queens Museum. You can also explore the park or nearby places to eat and shop to make a full day’s worth of adventure in NYC. NYSCI has its own parking lot, so driving your rental car won’t be a concern. However, plan to pay $10 for parking.
