Liberty Science Center
Liberty Science Center will reopen its doors to the public on September 5th, 2020. Admission tickets are now on sale via LSC.org and will be limited to less than 25% capacity to allow for appropriate physical distancing. “We’re thrilled to be able to welcome learners of all ages back to LSC where we can provide inspiring and entertaining learning experiences," said Paul Hoffman, President and CEO of Liberty Science Center.
Increased daily disinfecting and sanitizing protocols will be in place for the entire facility, with special attention paid to highly trafficked areas and high-touch surfaces throughout the building and its exhibits. LSC visitors will need to wear face coverings and maintain social distancing practices of six feet or more from other individuals.
