Top Things to Do
Jersey City may not always be the most happening tourist attraction on the east coast, but it is a great place to visit away from the hustle and bustle of NYC. You can take a day trip into New York City from Jersey City. Still, you may decide to stick around and check out the available attractions, including a ferry ride to Staten Island, museums, galleries, and interactive exhibits at the science center.
When considering Jersey City, you probably envision loud locals, vibrant casinos, and Lady Liberty standing guard in the distance. This excitement carries over to the museums.
Liberty Science Center: Come play at this interactive science museum filled with quirky experiments, amusing exhibits, and knowledgeable staff. The Liberty Science Center is located in Liberty State Park and opened in 1993. While here, wander through one of the most technologically advanced and biggest planetariums in the Western Hemisphere. The original Hoberman sphere is on display where you can learn the history of this phenomenon and learn how it folds down to a fraction of its original size.
Mana Contemporary: This hidden gem is a cultural center affiliated with the Mana centers in Miami and Chicago and housed in an old factory filled with Jersey charm. You can sign up for a guided tour through the center or wander through on your own. Check out the paintings, photographs, and sculptures on display. Sign up for an interesting class or enjoy listening to different speakers throughout the year. Walk through the Amulf Rainer and Andy Warhol exhibits before leaving.
Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal: Also known as the Communjpaw Terminal or the Jersey City Terminal, the Central Railroad used this terminal as the waterfront passenger entrance and was one of the busiest terminals in New Jersey. Catch a ferry out to Staten Island from here and take a tour of the Statue of Liberty. Stand just outside for fantastic views of the Manhattan skyline.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
