If you like the excitement of law enforcement and rescue operations, you don’t want to miss Uniformed Heroes Day at Liberty Science Center!
The entire Science Center and parking lot will be sizzling with the latest in ultra cool technology, larger-than-life vehicles and amazing demonstrations all day.
Bring the whole family and don’t forget your cameras as you climb on equipment from over 15 uniformed organizations such as: firefighters, police, emergency medical services and more. See cars torn apart in the Jaws of Life demonstration and watch police dogs in action. Then find out all about uncovering counterfeit money and recovering crime scene evidence with a real Crime Scene Investigator (CSI). Try an Air Force training simulator to see if you have “the right stuff,” and end your day of hands-on discovery by suiting up in firefighter or other uniformed gear and watch SWAT teams rappel down our building.
Liberty Science Center is pleased to celebrate our nation’s heroes in uniform by hosting a special day just for them! If you are a uniformed hero, enjoy the day with colleagues*.
