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.

The center offers pretty much anything to keep the entire family busy and engaged. From local animal and plant life to the imax theater on site, changing exhibits centered around kids and youths, usually all very interactive, there is always something to do. Great play area for the small, with water activities, play kitchen, a small sewer system to explore... More

I have 2 kids, 5 & 7 and we have been coming here for years. We live a few hours away, and when we come up for a weekend at Disney, we try and spend a day here. The museum has accessible parking for a minimal fee - the entrance fee itself is a little high, but we have a... More

Visited with my 3 girls (5, 2,and 9 mo) and had a blast! There are 4 floors with lots to do. They give you a map with age recommendation areas but we went to them all and tried everything out. Very clean and organized and lots of bathrooms. There's even a Subway for lunch. Will definitely visit again. Would love... More

Visited the Center this week during a heavy rainy afternoon. There is a garage with a walkway attached to the Center so we did not get wet. There are 4 floors of exhibit which are very hands on. Numerous buttons to push and levers to pull. Although we were all adults, we enjoyed the Center as well as any of... More

Nice place, my seven year old loved the exhibits and my three year old loved curious George!! It might have been a little to much for the kids to understand but they had fun with the hands on parts.

Two parent sets with a three kids among us (5, 5, and 6) and we stayed all day!! We had visions of a boring museum and were thrilled with hands-on exhibits which had plenty of variety for all age groups. The area around the museum, Loch Haven Park, is beautiful while the Science Center is well kept, clean and spacious.... More

Since buying a membership to our local science center we have been visiting science centers a lot and this one is the best so far. It had something for each age group. There were a lot of camps but being four levels it seemed to keep the camps spread out so they didn't take over. The teen volunteers were all... More

My wife, son, daughter-in-law and grandson had a great time. We enjoyed all the exhibits. My grandson especially liked the dinasaur exhibit. He liked digging for bones and controlling the animanic dinasaur. We also enjoyed both the science and Curious George exhibits. We had a wonderful time and will definitely go back. There is a Subway there for lunch that... More
