NYSCI was founded at the 1964–65 New York World’s Fair and has evolved into New York’s center for interactive science. It 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. 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. Next to the Hall of Science are a few leftover exhibition pieces such as rockets and futuristic spaceship.
