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!

Orlando Science center is packed with exhibits and activities, especially for preschoolers and elementary school kids. I recommend and annual pass if you are local. Parking is convenient and included for members.

It's all indoors and there are plenty of science based activities including several play areas. The climbing area is fantastic for little ones. Knowledgeable staff are always around to answer questions or enlighten your group on a particular exhibit topic. Highly recommended.

I went with my husband and we had a lot of fun. We want to come back and do the adults only time. They have a good bit of stuff to do and we loved how most of the stuff was hands on activities. We will definitely be back!

Was looking for things to entertain my 11yr and 13 yr old grand daughters while I was visiting. Went on a Friday afternoon. Many camp kids there-( they have a summer camp program.) But we avoided the little ones and moved on to the exibits for the older ones. We all found many interesting hands on exibits. We took in a 3-D movie on birds in flight- very cool. Wish girls would go for another- Antartica or Africa were also featured - or lazer light show. We were there for about 3 hours. It's not really that huge- 3 or 4 floors but not big footprint. Was a little costly and you need to pay 5.00 for parking- but I thought it was all worth it. Special time with Grandma!!!
