  • 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.
  • 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!
  • We had an amazing experience visiting the Orlando Science Center! We were in town from Virginia. My nine year-old daughter wanted to go back for a second day because there was so much available. We didn't even get to see and do everything in a day. There were tons of interesting hands on activities for Kids! They had an awesome amphibians and reptiles display. The 3D movies and movies in the planetarium were amazing. The love walk with the rainbow origami hearts was so pretty. Lunxh and snacks were available at reasonable prices. (There is a Subway restaurant inside.) Take your kids here for a day of family fun. You won't be sorry!
  • Had a great time with the family today! Lots of fun exhibits and I don't think we even saw them all!! My 5yo loved It! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the elevator was a bit of a pain...we had a stroller for our infant and it's tiny and took a lot of time to get from floor to floor. We eventually ended up parking stroller and just carrying everything. But overall great day!!
  • The best for young kids but also some great interactive displays for older kids. If you're in town for the mouse, come here and give your young kids some educational fun. Also it's all indoors and large enough that you could spend the whole day there, but don't have to. Family membership is the way to go for locals.
