I've been meaning to take my 4 year old dinosaur fan to the Orlando science center for a while. I am glad we did it this week because my son loved seeing the bats. Well my Dino fan loved Dino digs of course. One of the volunteers Ed. S imparted so much knowledge about dinosaurs. He was extremely passionate and... More

We went to the center during pirate week. My 4 year old son was able to participate in a treasure hunt and make a pirate bracelet. After that he was able to pet a baby alligator. He really enjoyed the turtles and making a boat race faster by creating barriers. My husband and I really enjoyed the film on the... More

I took my 6 year old Granddaughter here along with her Mother and Mema. We all had a great time, my Granddaughter loved it. Our only disappointment was that we arrived late in the day and only had a couple of hours there. We were able to visit two floors and my Granddaughter did not want to leave when closing... More

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
