My husband, 2 year old son and I got rained out of disney so we picked this as an alternative. Such a terrible experience. We paid $38 which wasn't terrible, got two wristbands. My son wore mine for a while then threw it out. Nobody even checked if I had a band. There's no map of the entire place, and... More

If you get rained out of Disney, this is a great no so pricy alternative. Kids will have endless fun and adults will find it interesting as well.

All kids, from the very small ones up to12 years, or even more,... More

I brought a total of eight people and everyone enjoyed the outing very much. Everyone had something to do and something they were interested in... my kids love the Dora the Explorer section!

Visited OSC in February 2015. We had a great day. Did not arrive until close to lunch time so it was busy but the crowds did thin out a bit. KidsTown, All Aboard and Dino Digs were just right for my 3 and 1 year olds.I loved the sensory aspect to Jurassic Ridge. It was a relaxing last stop on... More

I'm 35 and have been going here since field trips in elementary school. We take our children here about 1-2 times per year. It's always fun to let them roam the center and experiment with all of the exhibits. We've seen a film here once but the steepness of the seating and the way the screen is made me a... More

We took our daughter here for her 9th birthday and we had a really great day. First of all, admission is only $20 for adults and it includes unlimited movies (as many as you can realistically fit in) in both their dome theater and their 3d theater. We saw three different films throughout the day. First, we saw Hidden Universe... More

Always a fun time visiting the Orlando Science Center, more so when they have their special events nights and weekends such as this. Otronicon is a great time to check out some future tech and video gaming of the future. Also a great time to meet indy developers of games and such. Gant go wrong when they are serving craft...

First of all, allow me to say that this museum looks great. There's so much to do and see and one could spend all day wandering about. With that said, that's not what we were able to do on my recent visit. I came with a school trip. Apparently, in past years, they would break up in small groups and... More
