Great Museum for Kids - NY Hall of Science

Don't be hesitant to leave Manhattan.  Some of the most interesting sights in New York are not in this famous borough.  If you're looking for something to do with your kids while in New York City, you should take a trip out to Queens to visit the NY Hall of Science.  This fun museum will entertain all kids.

At the NY Hall of Science, your kids will get to do a lot of fun things (go into hallways with crazy mirrors, play mini-golf, learn about bubbles), but they will also have an educational day as well.  However, you should plan your visit according to school schedules because this museum is a popular place for field trips.
