The New York Hall of Science is welcoming back the public with an official re-opening on Saturday, February 19, 2022.  To mark the occasion, NYSCI is featuring its marquee new exhibit – The Happiness Experiment –which was created during the COVID-19 pandemic and explores the neuroscience behind happiness, asking visitors to examine what it means, how it shapes our lives, and how it contributes to resilience.

The Happiness Experiment ran for just seven weeks before Hurricane Ida forced the museum to close due to significant water damage. Thanks to the outpouring of support and generosity of donors, organizations, and community leaders, NYSCI has been able to repair damage to the street level of the building, so visitors can enjoy new science exhibits and engaging permanent exhibitions, while the most damaged areas continue with restoration

The New York Hall of Science is located at 47-01 111th St, Queens, NY
