Owner description: 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!

“went for the Star Wars special event”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

The science center was just ok - nothing great but it was a rainy day so we went specifically to see the Star Wars special event which was really cool.

“Lots to Do...and Weddings Too!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I recently visited the science center while shooting a wedding reception held on their vast terrace. If you are looking for a large space to host an event with a wonderful tree top view, then this is a pretty cool venue. In addition to your guests attending your event they can venture around the museum, which has interesting exhibits and playful, interactive stops along the way.

“A great rainy day activity!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

It seems that we have become science museum junkies! They have become our go-to in most cities we visit! This is a great museum! My little girl especially loved the "orange grove" exhibit, along with the Meerkat movie in 3D. The only thing that I can say is that if you are a regular patron of science museums, they all become very similar. This one is no different, the exibits are basically the same everywhere you go, but if you're in Orlando and it rains...I say appease your inner nerd and head to the Science Center!
