Our 6, 4 and 2 year olds love this place. There is always way more for them to do there than we have time for. An annual pass is excellent value for money and gains you access to other science centers across the country.

Not as big as some larger cities. But there is plenty to do for an afternoon and there is always a special exhibit that changes often.

Worth the 30 min drive from Disney area to visit. Kids are 12 and 10 and loved it here! Lots of great exhibits - especially loved the heroes section and the alligators.

We had a half day before flying out of Orlando and decided to visit the science center. It was nice, though aimed at younger children. I think that it needs a bit of updating and could be much better than it is. Given its size...More

In addition to Subway on the first floor, we are opening a coffee shop inside of the Science Center later this month. The coffee shop will serve drinks and healthy snacks.

Hi Beth. Monday and Tuesday typically have the lowest field trip attendance. You can call us before your visit and we will provide an estimate of the attendance since most groups book far in advance.
