Overview

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!

When you visit Orlando, you miss these EXCELLENT places to let your kids or even yourself see yourself in the world we live in. This Center is on the scale of Science Centers in the world.

In addition to Subway on the first floor, we are opening a coffee shop inside of the Science Center later this month. The coffee shop will serve drinks and healthy snacks.

Hi Beth. Monday and Tuesday typically have the lowest field trip attendance. You can call us before your visit and we will provide an estimate of the attendance since most groups book far in advance.
