New Jersey is home to several dozens of museums and while most arts and culture enthusiasts would like to visit each one of them, those visiting from out of state or out of the country may not have enough time.
It is a great thing though that some travel and culture enthusiasts have come up with their recommendations on the top museums to visit when in New Jersey.
In its official website, the New Jersey Tourism Authority came up with the guide on all the museums in and around the whole state. One of those in the list is the famous Liberty Science Center.
“Liberty Science Center (LSC) is a 300,000-square-foot museum in Liberty State Park on the Jersey City bank of the Hudson near the Statue of Liberty. It has 12 hands-on exhibition halls, a live animal collection with 110 species, giant aquariums, a 3D theater, a 35-foot high climbing gym, and a pitch-black, 80-foot-long, crawl-through maze.”
