The New York Hall of Science, also known as NYSCI, is a science museum in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in the New York City borough of Queens. It occupies one of the few remaining structures from the 1964 New York World's Fair. The more than 400 hands-on exhibits focus on biology, chemistry, and physics. The Hall mainly focuses on education for children ages 1–17 and its audience consists primarily of city children for whom the exposure to science is something new. The museum includes a large permanent collection as well as a range of travelling exhibitions.
