Overview

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!

Three levels with a glass elevator. Hands-on activities. Clean. 20 dollars per person. Friendly staff. Reptiles on the third floor. Playground tree was closed. Parents should be aware that they have transgender bathrooms. Subway at the ground floor.

I took my two grandsons to the science center for the day and we had a fantastic time! The addition of the teams from NASA, especially Dr. Yu, made it very special. The boys and I enjoyed the kids town activities, the animals on the...More

Check their website for special exhibits, but take all age children to the planetarium. It's magical and inspiring for young folks. Love to see their eyes get big and their brains engage.

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.
