Sony Wonder Technology Lab
Hosted by the fabulous talking robot, B.B. Wonderbot, Sony Wonder Technology Lab is an interactive hi-tech playground which is a great place for kids, and the best part is that it is free. With rotating exhibits on audio, robotics, networks and more, children get hands-on experience making their own music videos or tracking the weather or participating in any number of technology education programs. It is fun for the parents, too, as it is attached to the Sony Style retail store, where there is plenty of cool stuff for grownups to play with.
Absolutely LOVED the museum, although the robot went wacko on me; It suddenly said 'you must have ADD'. I fought back by saying 'haha, all gears and no brains', and its like 'come here you!!'.
Other than that, it was just marvelous.
I liked the History Time Line because it is clear and easy to follow.
I disliked the attitude of the toilet attendent, at 1pm. because he is disrespectful to War Veterans. The lady greeting the school groups did't seem to be concerned about his attitude either.
We went to the Sony wonder lab with a 12, 13 and 14 year olds. What a waste of time. First sign in, is the best part. Most of the things there are designed for kids under the age of 6. one thing was step on this spot and the light follows you, anotherr was pretend you are on the news. Plus little kids take a while to do the stuff so you wait, and wait, and when you get to the activity, your like, what a waste of time. so after the first one, my kids would look at the activity and then say no thank you. the movie was an Elmo movie. So if your kids are watching sesame street then this would be good for you, but bring your patience. hey it is free and in NYC that is a big deal. call first and get reservations.
Sony Wonder is a great place to take kids from 5 to 15. The kids will love the robot who greets them in the lobby. The robot interacts with the kids and adults by asking questions, answering questions, or just making silly comments.
This is a great place for kids to learn technology!
Normally you can just walk up and get free tickets to go in within a few minutes, but beware it is also a favorite for school groups.
