The Orlando Science Center is one of our favorite places to go. Their exhibits change frequently enough that it is never the same experience. My 11-year-old daughter thinks the baby alligators are absolutely precious! And they have the same type of turtle we do - the red eared slider. The observatory is incredible! The mini activities in the halls in between exhibits are really fun for the kids. I am also impressed with their gift shop. We always find something to add to our studies. And one last thing, my daughter wanted to add, "The food is quite good, too!"

We've been members of the Orlando Science Center for quite a few years. They offer a variety of unchanging exhibits (Florida habitat w/ baby alligators, electricity, Kids Town, etc.) plus a good mix of limited-engagement exhibits, such as Titanic, The Human Body, Nascar, Richard Scarry's Busytown, etc. We love going to the observatory to check out the constellations and, if we're lucky, see Mars, Saturn and/or Venus. The Orlando Science Center offers a variety of hands-on homeschool classes and some fun, educational, live science shoes geared toward kids/families. Plus, the Science Center shows several large-format films every day in their 3-story, dome-shaped theater.

This place is the best. We have loved every visit. There is something to do for everyone. Our kids usually love to hang out in the water area and orange picking area. There is also a cafeteria to refuel.

We loved all the hands-on experiments that were available. We had a great time discovering science through action and reaction using magnets. My student loves to do experiments. Science is one of her favorite subjects. We liked the planetarium as well. We will definitely be going back next year. She learned so much about the human body through games such as the huge "Operation" game that was about 5ft long.

We love this place! We've had annual memberships since our son was 2. It's great for children middle school and under and for highlooers and adults who don't know much about science. Some special features include free IMAX movies with membership, reciprocal membership (with certain other museums), a cafe on the first floor, a special area dedicated to children under 6 or so, and visiting exhibits. Recently there was a mummy exhibit! Periodically the Orlando Science Museum hosts Mini Maker Faires. Free garage parking comies with your membership which is great when it's a rainy day. When it's raining, and you feel like you don't know what to do with your kids and you just need to get out - this is the place to go :)
