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!

great place to spend a day with kids (age up to 10-12 years). also for parents/adults very interesting and enjoyable! we could't do and explore everything and therefore we will come back for sure! for a first time visitor, parking was a bit difficult to find.

Our family used our Ohio science center pass at the Orlando Science center while in Florida . We enjoyed a great day there with plenty to keep a family with kids 20 to 10 interested. Our Ohio membership was reciprocal and we did not pay for entrance. I would suggest going there. It is a great place for anybody. Bathrooms... More

My husband and I wanted to check out the Orlando Science Center and the new exhibit, Mummies. First we parked in the garage and walked across the bridge, the first thing we noticed was how loud it was...It was children yelling, etc. ( like they we outside on a playground). Upon entering the center it was even louder not only... More

First time I have been to the Orlando Science Center. It is a great place. They have so much to see and do. I went to see the Humpback Whale movie and I have to say it is an inspiration. They show it in the big theatre which is round. You feel as if you are in the sea with... More

Very well laid out four story museum. The mummy exhibit was very interesting. The museum appears geared towards younger folks.Many, many hands on exhibits for the kids. It has snacks and a Subway. Parking is across the street in a parking garage. Elevators available for baby strollers. The only downside was the many bused groups of young children in which... More

We had an extra vacation day in Orlando and were looking for something to do. We were very happy that we ended up here. The exhibits and hands on attractions were enough to keep our 7 year old happy for a few hours. I highly recommend going on a day when they show a movie in the evening. We saw... More

We went to the OSC just to see the mummy exhibit, “Mummies of the World.” This exhibit was very professionally done. It included just a few Egyptian exhibits, which made it stand out in my mind from others that we have seen. There were more exhibits from Europe and South America. Some of the specimens were from 1800s; some were... More

I love the science center! This is a really fun place that's great for people of all ages. There's a planetarium with a huge telescope. It's pretty cool. There's also a giant IMAX theater that plays educational movies. There's just a ton of stuff to do.. Everything is interactive and interesting and just really engaging. Also, the Orlando Science Center... More
