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!

Please note, on Fridays and Saturdays through March 27, 2016 Orlando Science Center has extended hours for Star-Studded Evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for Digital Adventure Theater films and the Crosby Observatory (weather-permitting) only. After 5:00 p.m. exhibit halls will be closed.

Our family loves the science center! Always new exhibits, movies & activities for all. It can get crowded but it's to be expected since it's a popular local family spot.

My autistic 4yr old nephew had a blast in this place. They have like four different floors with different themes and activities for kids. My nephew played with every single thing they offered.

We took students here for a field trip before our Sea World outing. The students were fully engaged and the staff made sure the experiments were age appropriate.

My favorite thing to do was the Space movie at the Cinedome where you get to see the stars and the planets,... More

The engineering and space exhibits were fun for the kids. They enjoyed the flight simulators. The exhibit showing where it's easier to pull yourself up with a compound pulley rather than a single pulley was eye opening to our boys.

This is a nice museum, but is not cheap. There are some very good interactive exhibits, but much of the museum pales in comparison to other similar museums in other big cities. The one in Jacksonville, IMHO, is much better.
