Orlando Science Center, Orlando, Florida

One of my favorite attractions in Central Florida is the Orlando Science Center (http://www.osc.org/). I have visited OSC many times, both with my classes (as a teacher) and with my son. I have always had fun.


There are traveling exhibits that change a few times each year, as well as the standard exhibits. There are lots of opportunities for hands on fun, with a special exhibit (Kid Town) for pint sized kids to really dig their hands into science, where kids can pick and pack oranges and build dams on a water table.

Whether you want to explore outer space, experience an earthquake, or dig for dinosaur bones, you can do it at the Orlando Science Center.

There are also classes that you can schedule for groups that give visitors a more in depth experience in a subject of their choosing. My students took a geology class that had them digging for fossils, learning about soil erosion, and plate tectonics.

There is a planetarium show at night and movies in the Cinedome during the day. The Cinedome movies are awesome - you feel like you are right in the middle of the action.

There are also live science shows in the Darden Adventure Theater during the day which include liquid nitrogen and nail chairs.

Loch Haven Park is a park right next door, which is an excellent place to have a picnic lunch. Or you can eat in the Elements Cafe.

Admission is $17 for adults and $12 for children 3-11 with senior and student tickets for $16.

We've been here!

We used to live in Orlando and had annual passes to the Orlando Science Center. I would literally take the kids here once a week. We always had a blast! They were both little back then, preschool/kindergarten age. Wow! Memories! Always a good place to spend an afternoon!
