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!

We waited for 15 minutes in line for admission for the OSC. Then we were told they were not accepting ASTC memberships. Why have it on your website how great the reciprocity is when you will not honor it?! Great way to ruin a trip for a visitor from out of state with children.

we went here on our first day of our vacation due to rain that day. we had great time and had plenty to take up rainy day. the entrance fee was very reasonable and we were surprised to find it had 4 floors to it! lots of educational and fun exhibits to see. my kids, ages 10 and 5, really like the dinosaur bones exhibits. they have full set of T-rex bone cast as well as several other types. we also really like the imax type movie that we saw. my kids got to touch snakes and a small alligator too. there is a subway at front entrance with plenty of seating which was nice also. this was a great way to start our trip and was nice to find a non disney attraction in orlando that wasnt super $$. we all agreed we wished we had a place like this where we live!

Have gone here repeatedly; there is so much to see and do. "Shows" change often. Interesting and educational. Gift shop adds a lot with a variety of inventory which makes browsing and purchasing easily done.

We were in Orlando for our grandson's 7th birthday and sent the afternoon at the center. It's a great place to visit with the entire family!
