New Brunswick Sights



Science East Review

This hands-on science center, in the former York County Jail, is all about family fun, with more than 150 hands-on exhibits on its three floors. You can test your reflexes in the Batak Reaction Tester, have fun with flying machines in the wind tunnel, set off the rocket launcher, walk into a giant kaleidoscope, create a mini-tornado, and explore the museum in the dungeon. The Hurricane Simulator is a current favorite. There's a giant pirate ship in the outdoor playground.
