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.

We love going to OSC. It is a great place for the entire family. So many things for kids of all ages (young kids too). It is especially nice when it is so hot outside during summer break. The kids love it and we all stay cool.

This is a fantastic science museum with lots of hands-on activities, interactive exhibits and workshops for children. If you're a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch customer, you can receive one free general admission to the Orlando Science Center every first weekend of the month with the Museums On Us program.

I had the yearly pass for my kids because they enjoyed being there so much and it helped keep them occupied.There is so much to do and learn and the yearly pass was the best way to go when my kids were young.

The Science Center is lovely and there is a parking garage next door for a little cost. The walkway has a lovely tribute to the Orlando nightclub shooting victims. The center is a bit costly for adults as it is mostly kid oriented. There are some great exhibits and dinosaurs. Plus I got to pet a skunk!!! Lots of experiments... More

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.
