The art of building something large with many small things is brought to new heights at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center. With fifteen attractions for kids of ages 3-10, this spot delivers a fun-packed day, boasting an incredible assortment of treats for the LEGO lover. From its 4D LEGO cinema, to its brick-building factory, to its various thematic building areas, LEGOLAND allows youngsters to immerse in a world where anything is possible, and where the simple but hard work of putting little pieces together rewards the vastest of visions. Kids can wonder though a LEGO version of New York City, join the LEGO fire academy, or hop onto the Merlin's apprentice ride. Indeed, the possibilities are endless in this house for making!
Children connect to the fertility of nature in The Science Barge, where kids learn handy techniques to make use of the environment with care and respect. Aboard this boat, comfortably stationed on the Hudson River, they grow their own vegetables and fruits without using pesticides, or producing any carbon emissions. Let kids be amazed by nature as they learn that the barge is surrounded by solar panels that give it energy, as well as by the river-water that irrigates its crops. Learning to carefully produce edible goods, invaluable life lessons are shared in this unique outpost.
Few things inspire as much awe as the vastness of space. Staring into our universe and beyond, we are inevitably struck by the immensity of what surrounds us. At the Andrus Space Transit Planetarium, this visceral experience is channeled through fun activities and programs so that kids of all ages can enjoy the wonders of space.
