The Orlando Science Center is one of Orlando’s premier museums loaded with things to do for families, for adults, and for kids. The Science Center is filled with tons of hands-on exhibits involving space, nature, physics, and technology. Exhibits such as their well-known Nature Works Exhibit recreates an entire ecosystem environment inside the museum filled with salt marches, coral reefs, swamps all which feature their own plants, insects, and animals.

There are also exhibits on outer space, the human body, weather systems, and dinosaurs. All exhibits are kid friendly, but at the same adults have fun too.  One of the top attractions at the Science Center is their CineDome Theater, a movie theater that has steep stadium seating that displays pictures on a dome wall that is almost as tall as an 8-story building. The theater typically features movies that are based on specific habitats, ecosystems, animals and basically anything that shows a lot of imagery.  The museum can be a huge resource for those looking to do events, workshops, camps, or classes for both adults and kids.

Special Unlocked Tip:   if you want to avoid paying for parking in the parking garage and you don’t mind a bit of a walk, you can park in the Loch Haven parking area next door for free.  If you do park in the garage, try to park on the fourth floor and that will allow you to take the walkway directly into the museum without the elevator or stairs.  Also the Orlando Science Center runs tons of programs and sometimes run $5 Saturday specials which are known by some as Walmart days, the museum is packed on those days, but it might be worth it to check it out.  The Unlocked team recommends that guests should plan their day there so they can see a CineDome movie showing while they’re there.
