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!

Wonderful science museum with many different kinds of hands-on experiences for children. Live crocodiles. Well organized. Handicapped accessibility is good - elevators, wide hallways, etc.

Limited lunch menu - subway sandwiches, pizza, etc. But, we also saw families who brought their own picnic lunches and were eating in the dining room - which is a wonderful option and a way for families to eat healthier/cheaper.

We were traveling with our grand daughters ages 6 and 10. They both loved it! This is a great place to spend the day. So much to do. Plenty of activities for ages toddler to preteen. The Cine Dome was a new experience for us. If we lived in the area, we would definitely get an annual membership. We ate lunch there at Subway and it was good.

My family and I went here to try something new. What a treat. Between the dinosaur fossils with Dino dig for the kids, live crocodile show, movies, and using science in a fun way, this place was the best. We were there over three hours and I feel like we definitely could have stayed there even longer. This is a place for all ages and guarantees not to disappoint. I can't believe I just learned about this place....through trip advisor no less!

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!
