  • My family loves coming here. There is something for everyone. Great for your children. Educational yet makes learning very fun. 
  • What a great place to take the kids for a nice change from all the theme parks. Biggest tip I can give any adult going here is to take some ear plugs because believe me the kids are having so much fun...  read more »
  • What a treasure for those who live here. I would definitely have a membership! Loved the toy exhibit, lots of fun things to look at. At every turn throughout the center were things children could do. ...  read more »
  • 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.
  • My husband and I visited this museum today and although it was a nice museum for the right people I have been to other science museums I liked a lot better. This one seemed like it was much more geared at children and had much less for the adults to enjoy. So because of this I personally wouldn't visit it again unless I was taking one of the kids in my family. Also, I had been told there was a planetarium here, there is not. They do have a telescope that is open certain evenings but we were not able to see this since we didn't know that it was there. If we had known about this ahead of time we may have came later in the day to be able to enjoy this part of the museum as well. We spent about 2 1/2 hours walking around the museum with no kid and we did not watch one of the shoes.
  • I've enjoyed the science center since I was a kid, it's so fun. Staff is wonderful and this place a really great way to introduce the fun side of science to your family. Absolutely bring the family. They have a built in subway as well in their caffiteria or great places outside for a picnic.
  • The Orlando Science Center is a great local attraction. They keep the center clean and neat for their guests. I have two young children that love going to the OSC. They do a good job of bringing in great exhibits as well. The membership options are great and not too expensive. I love having a membership and being able to take the kids up here for hours and hours of fun.
  • Went twice! Second time for a wedding and reception in the 4th floor! The center is amazing and brought me back to my childhood! (I'm an engineer now) and they did a spectacular job for the wedding and reception on the 4th floor archeological exhibit hall!
