“inspiring curiosity & exploration”
Located in Orlando, Florida, interactive learning and discovery await within the center’s hundreds of exhibits, programs and labs, giant screen films and planetarium shows. The science center provides educational opportunities both within and outside the center’s walls, including field trips, family science nights at schools and community centers and other outreach.The Science Center was incorporated in 1955 as the Central Florida Museum and opened in Orlando Loch Haven Park in 1960. The new facility opened in 1997 with four floors of exhibit space, an observatory, a giant screen domed theater for films and planetarium shows, a café, a store and much more. The facility was created by traditional museum exhibit designers and fabricators, as well as theme park designers and fabricators. These creative professionals worked with the Science Center staff to pioneer innovative exhibit environments for immersive guest experiences. For over fifty years, the 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. We're the perfect educational activity, 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 movies and engaging live programming, the Science Center is the perfect family destination. We're also the ideal rainy day activity - fun for your entire family and completely indoors!
LOVE IT! Went with my 5 yo, 2 yo, and 9 mo and had a blast! Spent the whole day here. 4 floors with a map for age specific areas but you can visit them all regardless. All indoors which in July with the heat and/or rain is fantastic. Very clean and new looking. Bathrooms everywhere throughout. There is a subway inside for lunch. Staff is great. Highly recommend! Will definitely visit again!
An incredible hands-on learning center that is just as much fun for adults as it is for kids. If you were planning on hitting the theme parks in Orlando but were rained out, this is the place to go!
They have a resident artist who's been working with them since 2008. Something for everyone!
