    My kids really love going to the area to learn about the oranges but I'm not sure if it's there anymore. We love it because it is indoors and air conditioned, which is great for Orlando's hot and humi...  more »

    We have come here several times and have yet to see it all! They have great exhibits for little ones and older kids alike. You won't be bored here! It's a great stop. My only gripe is that the only fo...  more »

    Really a do museum. Lots of interesting activities for both young and old. There is a special village for young children that we have skipped. A whole educational experience in a very nice set up museum.

    This place is amazing for children. My family is visiting Orlando and we are so happy to have found this place. My children are 1 and 2 years old and we found plenty of fun, entertaining and educational things to do. With so many floors we could spend days exploring and not see the same thing twice. I especially appreciated the focus on sciences and the age range of learning. I saw infants to teenagers learning and having fun. My only issue was the food choice. I would like to see a healthier maybe locally owned option instead of Subway. We will be back next time we are in town.

    Extremely kid oriented!!! Hands on for everything which is wonderful! We enjoy the Denver Science Museum a lot yet this far exceeds even that! Every part of this is science yet it turns it into a children's museum by making every learning aspect hands on rather than a picture to look at with a sign to read about it. We did not even have time for all 4 floors! Ended up switching our day pass to a membership and will travel the 2 1/2 hours back again!

    My kids loved this place, definitely better for toddlers and young kids. It was a good break from the theme parks and there was plenty of things for them to do. Very interactive but there were also guided tours short enough to keep their attention and some movies throughout the day as well. Best part was the fact that we escaped the heat for the day and it was not crowded at all. Only downer was that the only thing to eat was Subway, don't get me wrong I love Subway, but their kids menu isn't the best.

    Our family LOVES a day at the science center! There is always so much to do there, but if you have little ones, you have to make some time for Kid's Town. The large dome movie theater is another must-have, they play some great short films there and the experience is amazing. The exhibits change often, so it's almost something new every time. They also have a Subway in the building, so you can make it an all-day outing and not have to worry about packing and carrying lunch. Get there early so you have time to see as much as you can!

    My 8 year old grandson and I had a wonderful day here! The activities are interactive. It was crowded but we were able to get to what he wanted to do and see. The summer camps that come in are a bit much with so many kids in every direction but the Volunteers were making sure they were taking turns.
