ROCKVILLE CENTRE, New York –  The new WAC Lighting Hall of Science hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony and program during July at the Tanglewood Preserve Campus in Rockville Centre, New York. The event was hosted in conjunction with The Center for Science, Teaching & Learning (CSTL).

The WAC Lighting Hall of Science will be the home to Long Island’s very own dinosaur and animal exhibition, a highly anticipated exhibit and tourist attraction. Over 150,000 school children and families from the New York region and beyond are expected to visit this exhibit annually. The two attractions—“Dinosaurs!” and “Peoples United Bank Animal Adventure”– focus on animal adaption and features animatronic, dinosaur models, amazing hand-painted dinosaur murals and a wide variety of animals.

Museum hours are every day from 10 AM to 4 PM. Adults are $15 and children 1- 10 years old are $12.
