New York Hall of Science

The New York Hall of Science occupies one of the few remaining structures of the 1964 New York World’s Fair in Flushing Meadow-Corona Park in the borough of Queens in New York City (USA). Today, it stands as New York City’s only hands-on science and technology center. The more than 400 hands-on exhibits explore biology, chemistry, and physics.

New York Hall of Science was established in 1964 as part of the World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. It remained open after the fair, until 1979, when the museum closed for major renovations. The Hall reopened in 1986.
Construction of a new entrance, dining area and a science playground was completed in June 1997. In 2004, the museum doubled its exhibit space with the addition of a new building as well as a Rocket Park with real rockets that were left over from the World’s Fair. An expanded science playground along with a Preschool Playground is scheduled to open in 2007. The museum has a section devoted to the World’s Fair, with artifacts and scale sad scaly orochimaru snakes
