Inside the pitch-black Touch Tunnel, you're completely blind. On your hands and knees, you crawl forward, relying solely on your other senses to lead you through the darkness. The tunnel is only 80 feet long, but the exit might as well be miles away. After finally emerging safe (and sighted) from the most popular exhibit at Liberty Science Center, a family could still spend four more hours at the many hands-on attractions and experiences designed to enlighten visitors about the power and fun of science.

All told, Liberty Science Center houses a dozen galleries for interactive exploration. Visitors can perform surgery on a 3D robotic simulator; tip-toe across a steel girder hovering 18 feet in the air; or even connect with more than 90 different animals, including giant fish and a family of tamarin monkeys. At I Explore, young scientists ages 2?5 learn about the world around them while launching colorful balls into the air or using a xylophone made of stone slabs. When it's time to relax, the whole family can visit the largest IMAX dome theater in the U.S., which transports onlookers from outer space to the deepest depths of the oceans and just about everywhere in between.

In 1942, New York City Mayor La Guardia banned pinball, claiming it was a game of chance and not skill. The ban stuck and the game didn't make its return until 1976 when the pinball ban was overturned. Today, no such controversy surrounds pinball?in fact, it's experiencing a resurgence in the city, with Modern Pinball NYC leading the charge.

Here, fun-lovers gather to rack up points on more than 30 machines, some of which date back to the late 1970s, some of which are brand new, with step-stools available for kids. But Modern Pinball NYC isn't your typical arcade; it features pinball machines exclusively, and, instead of bringing the machines to life by inserting quarters or hooking them up to car batteries, visitors purchase hour and day passes to play all the games as many times as they wish. This system enables Modern Pinball NYC to maintain a social, high-energy gaming environment that centers on clean, non-violent fun?a trait that many modern video games may lack.

Kids can explore a fiber optic cave, splash their way through an indoor water play area, or practice for a future career in real estate by showing potential buyers around the two-story treehouse.

New York is a city of immigrants, filled with the stories of the millions of men, women, and children who left their lives in the old country for a shot at grabbing the tantalizing American Dream. The Lower East Side Tenement Museum commemorates the everyday lives of these bygone New Yorkers. Housed in a national landmark tenement at 97 Orchard Street, the museum pays tribute to the 7,000 people from 20 nations who called the building home between 1863 and 1935 through educator-led walking tours of the surrounding neighborhood. Walking the same streets as their ancestors in one of America's most iconic immigrant neighborhoods, visitors forge powerful emotional connections with immigrants both past and present, bringing greater appreciation for the profound role immigration has played and continues to play in shaping America's evolving national identity.

Located on the second floor of the American Bible Society’s Upper West Side office, the Museum of Biblical Art programs exhibitions that allow visitors to rethink the Bible’s role in contemporary society and history. Recent exhibits include a survey of 19th-century Biblical art from the Dahesh Museum collection, a video and audio installation examining early 20th-century rural baptism, a look at bookmaking in the Gutenberg era and the religious-themed work of muralist Hildreth Meière. The museum puts on three shows a year, but only keeps hours when said sessions are going on – so plan accordingly if looking to take a peek inside. Visitors to the museum can enjoy interactive displays pertaining to the Bible in the building’s public lobby, while a small café and free WiFi are also available to those looking to linger.
