General admission for the Genius Gems experience costs
$15 + tax per person, including adults (children under 2 are free with an older sibling).
Beginning March 1, the adult fee is waived between 9-2 on weekdays only. Certain exclusions apply.
Due to large field trips occurring in March (3/6, 3/13, 3/20, 3/27), we suggest arriving after 11:30 am on the above dates. However, we are still open to the public even during field trips, and we will honor the March special if you arrive before 2 pm.

Each additional person is $39 + tax per 30 days.
WHAT TO EXPECT
WHAT DOES A GENERAL ADMISSION TICKET INCLUDE?
General admission/open play gives you access to everything in our main space, which includes our collection of over 30,000 magnetic tiles and our magnetic light wall. In addition, we offer daily engineering challenges in an adjoining project room, where inventions are created using everyday materials. All activities are facilitated by our talented staff in a clean, bright, museum-like setting. We also offer cafe seating (both indoors and outdoors), a gift shop, freshly-brewed espresso drinks, fresh cheese pizza, and healthy grab and go options for sale. We also have free on-site parking.
ARE RESERVATIONS REQUIRED? ARE WALK-INS ALLOWED?
You may purchase tickets either online or in person at our location (credit cards only - no cash is accepted).
HOW LONG IS EACH VISIT?
We suggest a 2-hour visit, but you are generally free to stay for longer if you choose. Please note that on particularly busy days (e.g., on rainy weekend days), we ask that you observe our 2 hour time frame. This ensure that all guests have an opportunity to enjoy the Genius Gems experience in a meaningful way. Thank you for your cooperation!
WHAT AGE IS THIS FOR?
Our main space is primarily for ages 3-12, but in reality everyone from teens to adults finds something they love doing at Genius Gems. For the youngest ones, ages 2-3, we offer weekday classes taught by an experienced educator. We also offer a monthly drop-in program, Early Bird STEM for our youngest engineers. For ages 10 and up, we offer more complex design challenges, from Tower Defense to Marble Runs, and they can also explore our large collection of Cubelets, Ozobots and other hands-on robotics. We also offer a very popular monthly date night drop off event and evening events for older children. See our upcoming events page for more details.
CAN I DROP MY CHILD OFF?
During general admission/open play, a parent/guardian is required to remain present at all times, and is responsible for his or her child at all times. Drop off is only permitted when a child is enrolled in a class, camp, and certain special events such as Teen Night and Date Night. Again, we are not a day care, and parents/guardians should never leave a child unattended at Genius Gems for general admission play.
DO I HAVE TO TAKE OFF MY SHOES TO PLAY?
Yes, we ask that all guests remove their shoes upon entering Genius Gems. We have a coat closet where you may leave your shoes. We also offer socks for sale ($2 per pair) at our concession area.
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS?
Please check our social media (@geniusgemsllc) and special events page for special and limited time offers. Note we do not charge for chaperones participating in field trips, and we are doing a special where we waive the adult fee during weekdays from 9 AM to 2 PM (except for posted blackout dates).
WHAT DO ADULTS DO AT GENIUS GEMS?
Many enjoy participating in everything we have to offer, from building to robots, and we find the more involved the parents get in the experience, the more they discover the value of our offering. Others prefer to relax in our sun-filled space while our staff facilitates our activities and fosters learning and collaboration. Both are acceptable!
We've built a parents' lounge right into our space that sells freshly brewed coffee drinks, fresh pizza, and grab & go healthy snacks. We also welcome you to bring your own food from home, if that will enhance your experience.
We have free WiFi.
Our cafe/lounge is in line-of-site to our main space, giving you peace of mind.
IS THERE PARKING AT GENIUS GEMS?
Yes, there is ample free parking on-site, even on weekends, so you never have to stress about feeding the meter or finding a space. We are also conveniently located within walking distance of the Millburn train station.
