13 MUST DO Activities at Liberty Science Center During Spring Break

Posted on: March 24th, 2015 by

This post was sponsored by The Liberty Science Center who provided Jersey Family Fun with tickets for our visit. We appreciate their support of Jersey Family Fun that allows us to share with families information about things to do with families in New Jersey & New Jersey Museums we think your family may enjoy.

 

Last weekend, we had the incredible opportunity to visit the Liberty Science Center. This is one of those museums that’s been on our bucket list for a while, but being from the southern half of the state the drive isn’t always doable. This past Saturday, though, the weather was beautiful and with an invitation from the Jersey Moms Blog to a blogger event, we had lots of reasons to make the trip. I’m so glad we did. It was just under 2 hours from Atlantic County. While we could go on and on about the reasons to visit, the boys and I came up with a top 13 must do activities at Liberty Science Center during spring break. First, a video sharing some of our highlights from our video.
