For more than 50 years, Orlando Science Center has been a place that inspires curiosity and exploration. Truly one of the great activities for Orlando families, the Science Center encourages learning in a fun way. There's no better place that combines fun and knowledge all under one roof! For visitors from out of town, Orlando Science Center is a must for your "things to do in Orlando" list.

We love all the hands on fun we have here and everyone from my 2 year old, to my 11 year old, to my husbamd has a blast. My only complaint is that the only food available is a subway. No one in my family is a fan of them and we would love more variety since this is an... More

This place is amazing and a lot of fun for kids and families. There is quite a lot of things to do. It is also clean and the staff is friendly. A parking garage is available and attached via an enclosed walkway across the street.

The exhibits are great for younger visitors, but it does not do well to hold the attention of teens or adults. We were expecting to see and do more than what was offered. Unlike other science centers I have visited, this one did not have anyone in the exhibit areas interacting with guests to provide hands-on learning or to explain... More

I would definitely say it's geared towards kids. There are SO many everywhere. We took our two 5 year olds. They loved all the exhibits. The kids especially liked NatureWorks (so did we), DinoDigs, and KidsTown. The grownups really enjoyed the Science Park and Mummies of the World. In my opinion, it is a little overpriced. We spent $90 for... More

We were very impressed with the Orlando Science Center. Visited with kids ages 11(x2), 7 and 4. All kids had a great time and were engaged in displays. There are many displays that are interactive for various age groups.

We went to the Orlando Science Center specifically to see the mummies exhibit and were glad we did because it was very interesting. We paid $24.00 each for two senior citizen tickets and that included the mummies display and all other things inside the Center. We didn't do the audio tour (I believe there was an extra charge for that)... More

We took our 4yr...she really loved uncovering/digging for the dinosaur bones. The mini earthquake & wind tunnel where also her favorites. Alot of the exhibits where for the older children & admission was pricey. We did experience the mummy exhibit... again no interest for my daughter. If your child is afraid of the dark & very active this is not... More

We had seen the Mummies of the World exhibit advertised on TV & really wanted to go to see it. When we found out about Bank of America's Museums on Us deal we decided to take advantage of it on the first weekend of the month. We checked out the fine print of the bank's ad & OSC's website to...
