Learn about 3D printing or robotics in hands-on workshops during our Science Meets Science Fiction Weekend, or get active with local New York sports teams over Sports and Games Weekend.

Kids Week activities, including raffles and special tour guide talks, are free with general admission. Additional activities such as Guided Tours and simulator rides require an additional fee.
