  • The science center was very good. My 6 year old daughter was entertained the entire day and we ended up cancelling our afternoon plans to stay there longer. The adults had fun as well. There were hands on activities ranging from engineering to climbing and executed ranging from nature and animals to ride and outer space. There are 4 floors and a Subway on the bottom floor if you want to buy lunch. I would recommend it for kids who love science and who like to play a lot. Clean, well maintained, fun, and informative. Great programs and presentations through the day and activities deuterated by age. It was great!
  • Just moved to Orlando area, and after our first visit here we easily decided to purchase the family annual membership. What a great indoor place to hang out with the kiddos on those hot days. There is a designated kids area, and most of the exhibits have at least some kid friendly features. There is lots to see, we usually only get to one or two areas during one visit. Forty-five minute 3-D or IMAX movies are included in admission.
  • I've visited a handful of science centers around the U.S. and the Orlando Science Center is right up there with the best of them. It is a great place for all ages and with the new upgrade to Kids Town, even toddlers can easily spend an entire day here. The annual family membership, which costs the equivalent of a single-day pass to a theme park, is an incredible value. In addition to admission, membership also enables access to many special events, all the movies in the CineDome/planetarium, and members-only parties such as Spooktacular on Halloween. I bring my youngster here almost every week and he never gets bored...nor do I!
  • We took our students on a field trip to the Orlando Science Center. It was a fun and wonderful educational experience. The exhibits they displayed were all very interactive and the theater performances were engaging and entertaining for the children. An excellent trip for those with young children!
  • An amazing place for the little ones to learn some science while having a blast. The staff are always courteous and helpful, and oftentimes if you have a random science question they'd love to talk with you about it. One unique thing you can ask for is an "Ask a Scientist" card that will let you ask any question you want and it'll be forwarded to a real scientist with a degree in the area of your question.
