I just returned from the Orlando Science Center. I was impressed by the website and as adult who likes museums, was excited to visit the Center. This place however is really geared to small children. Most of the exhibits are for little kids who need to learn about things most adults learned in school. A few of the exhibits are... More

I am telling you I am blown away by this place. I needed an activity to do with my 7 year old son while his dad attended a 5 hour meeting. I did get lost because I am so not familiar with Orlando and my gps on my phone decided to crash that day. Since I got lost we ended... More

Plenty entertaining and educational for all ages. Definitely geared towards kids but everyone learns. There are four floors with a theater on the main floor. Gorgeous theater by the way! Different areas provided different experiences like a curious George section and Dino area. All in all a very comfortable and fun experience

We visited the Orlando Science Center this month and the entire family found something that sparked their interest. There were many different areas to explore for smaller kids where they would be able to run around and get some energy out as well as areas that explained why certain things work the way they do. Great film on the Galapagos... More

We were looking for something to do in the Orlando area and decided to visit the center. My spouse and I enjoyed walking around and exploring the hands on activities. We most enjoyed the dino exhibit. Many of the exhibits are excellent for children and we were pleased seeing the many children experimenting with the activities. We enjoyed the film,... More

Orlando Science Center was awesome! They had really cool reptiles and there were physical exhibits like how long you can hand from a bar and how high you can jump.

The Orlando Science Center is a great place to beat the heat for a family with kids. When temps get in the 80s and 90s it's nice to have a place to kill a few hours and let the kids have fun out of the heat and humidity. Four floors full of educational exploration activities, animal exhibits, and educational nature... More

This place is awesome. The Dr. Phillips CineDome is one of the most amazing theatrical experiences you will ever have. The feeling of motion is so real! A great place and great value for a weekend afternoon.
