The Orlando Science Center is a hands-on museum that includes plenty to keep children fascinated. It is often difficult to find places that are really designed for children as young as two, but this one has a nice area that includes water play, creative play with building materials, kitchen materials, musical instruments, and foam building materials that are reminiscent of...

Its not cheap. There I've said it. But if you are willing to make the most of your day here it can be well worth it. The exhibits were very good with a large amount of interactive displays. They have a large number of movies, both 3D and Large Screen that are included in your admission. We arrived at about... More

This museum is fantastic! We showed up soon after opening (10:00) and the kids were still going strong at closing (5:00). This museum is hands on learning mixed with lots of fun. Build a boat out of Lego and see how many marbles it can hold. Allow race cars to slide down a 10 foot ramp to examine kinetic energy... More

Clean, up-to-date, entertaining, educational exhibits and activities. We spent the entire day here. One of the highlights was seeing the alligators being fed. On weekends they are fed mice and chicks. Exciting for the kids but most parents were having a hard time stomaching it. Lunch was very convenient since they have a Subway on site. Parking is free and... More

This relatively small children's museum can be fun for adults, too. We had a couple hours available before our flight home from Orlando and had reciprocal admission as the result of our museum membership at home. We had a great time in the first exhibit on the third floor. My husband hasn't had so much fun since he stopped playing... More

Pretty cool place....and GORGEOUS!! Super friendly staff and it's always fun to camouflage learning with having fun. Amazing dinosaur exhibit, really cool turtle/alligator display, awesome planetary room.....but our favorite was Dr. Dare's Laboratory. Hidden away (found it by accident) on purpose ... a real lab where kids are supervised doing experiments that are really COOL! Real beakers, bunsen burners, goggles,... More

During a week long visit to Orlando, it's nice to have an "indoor" day plan for foul weather. Although primarily kid oriented, it's easy to find and adults have no trouble spending a couple of hours wandering about the exhibits. So many fun and interactive exhibits for kids, several buses dropped loads of excited school kids and frazzled chaperones, during... More

I was looking for a children's museum and this is better! Great for kids all ages and interests. We got to pet a snake and an alligator, dig for fossils, design things, play in water, but my kids loved the orange tree area best! Friendly staff and there's a subway to eat at. Definitely on our must do again list!

I been going there since my son was about a year old. He's now almost 5. We go with friends of the same ages and we love it. Always something new to look at. Great movies. Close to the house. Season passes are the best bet!
