For more than 60 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!

Please note, on Fridays and Saturdays through March 27, 2016 Orlando Science Center has extended hours for Star-Studded Evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for Digital Adventure Theater films and the Crosby Observatory (weather-permitting) only. After 5:00 p.m. exhibit halls will be closed.

I have young children and have found that the Orlando Science Center is a reasonably priced place that provides hours of entertaining fun for the whole family. New exhibits arrive on a regular basis. We love going there so often that we went ahead and purchased annual family passes. Great for a rainy day or when it is too hot... More

The traveling exhibits are great. The bat exhibit was great informative and educational. Has some great animals such as gators, fish, turtles and snakes. IMAX theatre is also a plus.

This was such a treat for our children...from the 2 year old to the 8 year olds! The interactive science displays were so engaging and fun for even the adults. One of the BEST science museums ever.

Today I went to the Orlando Science Center with four kids - ages 8, 9, 12, and 13. You never know what you're getting with a science museum, especially when you're taking kids who are on the older end. Will they be bored? Will it be too babyish? My group had a GREAT time and were well-occupied for the better... More

I took my 5 year old Grandson and my 3 year old Granddaughter to the Science center. We had a great time there are 4 levels of all kinds of learning activities from the planets to dinosaurs. There is a dome shaped cinema where you can watch nature movies it is very beautiful. It is very busy in the summer.

Locals and visitors alike will enjoy the OSC! There is so much to do and it never gets old! Personally speaking, my husband and I have just as much fun as our 4 year old daughter! There are activities for even small children. We brought our daughter when she was 1 and there was plenty for her to do even... More
