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!

Please note, on Fridays and Saturdays through March 27, 2016 Orlando Science Center has extended hours for Star-Studded Evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for Digital Adventure Theater films and the Crosby Observatory (weather-permitting) only. After 5:00 p.m. exhibit halls will be closed.

Appeals to all with a range of regular and visiting exhibits. Excellent films. Parking is $5.00 in the adjacent parade. Cafeteria is from Subway. Good, large gift store. Well informed and helpful staff and volunteers. Located in a scenic park. We will return.

We took our grandchildren here to see the Mummy Exbibit. Both (ages 10, 14) loved it. Besides the mummies, there are several floors to visit with lots of hands on activities. It was about $94 for the four of us. I did not spend the $5 extra for the voice over. You can expect to run into groups of children... More

I had a lot of fun visiting the Orlando Science Center. Many of the exhibits are hands-on, and encourage interaction. I believe the entrance fee is fair for the amount of time spend here. I would recommend visiting!
