We've been spreading the word that the Liberty Science Center is anything but basic and boring. It's the type of children't museum that makes you want to get a monthly membership and actually use it! The latest reason to visit this New Jersey landmark is called EXTREME. This weekend we got to join the Extreme Fun takeover at Liberty Science Center.
Extreme Fun takes over at Liberty Science Center
Happening every fourth Friday from 6 pm – 10 pm, Extreme LSC is the ultimate way to kick off a weekend of fun. Perfect for kids ages 3-12, this is a hands-on exhibit for kids who love ACTION.
We know, we know, your weekends are crazy (indoor soccer seems to be taking over the area this winter, and don't even get us started on dance recitals!). This is an awesome way to see the best of the LSC in one night and STILL have a free weekend.
We gathered our influencer friends for a night out. The kids started off with an energetic game of laser tag. Yep, even some of the parents got involved in the laser tag arena.
A favorite activity was the slime area. No mom actually wants to make this stuff at home, at LSC you get to be the fun mom and say YES to everything. Go ahead, get messy with slime experiments. If you want you can even bring the slime home (but I wouldn't, because...carpets)
You'll also be able to score seats to see the new planetarium and laser shows. On nights when the weather allows, families can head outside for stargazing through our high-powered telescopes alongside space experts.
Still have a little energy left after all this? Let the kids hop into the massive ball pit. I guarantee they will have a blast and sleep well!
Keeping your New Year's resolutions
The New Year is off to a fresh start, and many of us are committed to doing something or many things with more intention this year. But it's tough to stay on track. In fact, “Quitters Day”, which falls on January 14th this year, is the day when most people give up. How can you ...read more

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe
We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
All of LSC’s exhibitions will be open, too! Your ticket will give you access to all the museum favorites – the Touch Tunnel, the Infinity Climber, the animals in Eat and Be Eaten. Something about being at a museum past dark makes it feel extra memorable.
