Visitors who make the short trip across the Hudson to the Liberty
Science Center in New Jersey's Liberty State Park will be well
rewarded with a multitude of exciting exhibitions.
Recently installed permanent exhibits include "The Magic of
Flight," which traces aviation history from the Wright Brothers to
the present day, and "Exploring Earth's Energy," which explores a
dozen different energy sources, from fusion to solar power.
Kids will delight in "The World of Peter Rabbit," a hands-on
exhibit on view through Sept. 12, and "Mostly Music," a show
running through next Jan. 3 that invites viewers to strike up the
band, conduct a symphony or play a musical instrument.
Other attractions include the Kodak OMNI Theater with the
largest IMAX Dome screen in the U.S.
