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. With four floors of exciting exhibits, amazing giant screen and 3-D films as well as engaging live programming, the Science Center is the perfect family destination. We're also the ideal rainy day escape!

Took my son and his friend today and they had a ball. The center is very informative and a perfect place to expose your children to basic science.

This place is so much fun that we took a group of French exchange students there! Lots of things to learn and experience, all with the format of play and messing around.

We were visiting Orlando, & a couple of our kids had sunburn, and didn't want to be outside at the Parks. Instead, we decided to go to the Orlando Science Center, and it turned out to be a good decision. The kids, who were initially grumbling about going to a science center thinking it would be boring they ended up... More

The Orlando Science Center was a fantastic getaway/field trip for an elementary schooler's gifted program. I will say, though, after visiting world class museums around the US, this may pale in comparison.

We went to the Orlando Science Center on a Friday. Our 2 children that went with us are 17 and 14. I first thought there were not enough things for children our age to do, but soon found there were many things that interested them. The OSC is well put together and there were plenty of staff to answer questions... More

We read great reviews and were excited to go during our Florida vacation. In our opinion, this would be a good outing if you have young children, up to the age of seven or so. For us, two adults and a 13 year old, most of the exhibits were not appealing. A few very interactive simulator exhibits on the 2nd... More

This atraction is out of the parks&shopping axis, but it is amazing for all ages... We can be in close touch with several experiments which give life to all curiosity that most of us have about several natural phenomenon. It is a very exciting visit and it's better to save one whole day to it. I strongly recommend!

If I could give this science center more than five stars, I would. My son had such a fun time here and learned so much. We came for a day just to check it out and left with annual memberships and the desire to return weekly. The staff was very friendly and personable. They engaged my son in conversation and... More

Just left couldn't wait to write a review. Accidentally spent 3 hours here!!!!!! Kids were enjoying themselves. A lot of fun little things to do on each level. Not expensive at all. Would highly recommend for kids and a date day. Noticed they're doing renovations will add more fun to the already fun place !!!!!
