The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) will repoen to the public on Thursday, July 8th, 2021 with access to its new exhibit – the Happiness Experiment.


Created during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Happiness Experiment will invite visitors to explore how we can all have greater control over our own happiness, even in the face of challenges and other influences.

The exhibit, sponsored by bubly, delves into the neuroscience and social science of happiness and will guide visitors through a series of playful, immersive areas where they will discover the ways in which this emotion can affect our well-being, and how we can bring more of it into our lives.

In addition to the new Happiness Experiment exhibit, NYSCI will be hosting a weekend-long celebration, sponsored by Amazon, that includes

  • The debut of Small Discoveries, a reimagined exhibit that invites visitors to explore the power of microbes;
  • Design engineering activities, free workshops in our Maker Space, access to Rocket Park mini-golf, and dozens of other exhibits and experiences, as well as complimentary beverages at The bubly Smile Bar;
  • Several days of engaging community activities throughout the building, including Queens-based muralist Rob Anderson who will work with visitors between 12 noon and 4 PM Saturday, July 3 and next Saturday/Sunday to collaboratively paint three 6-foot long and 6-foot high murals on the fence along 111th Street;
  • For the youngest visitors, a redesigned PreSchool Place, featuring a new shadow and light area, train, tinkering and building activities, and a new space for infants

The Happiness Experiment is free with NYSCI admission and is open during regular museum hours:

Thursday, Friday & Sunday: 10am-5pm
Saturday: 10am-6pm
Closed Monday – Wednesday
