Established for the 1964-1965 World's Fair and located in New York's Flushing Meadows Corona Park, the Hall of Science offers over 400 exhibits and activities dedicated to making the learning of science, technology, engineering, and math fun for children and adults. Only a few years after its opening, the museum saw crowds of over 10,000 in a single weekend and had hosted one million visitors within its first few years. Tens of millions more have enjoyed this educational museum over the past fifty years.
