I've been visiting the Orlando Science Center my entire life.
Even when it was located in the old building by the Art Museum. I have memories of seeing an amazing Pearl Jam laser light show in their planetarium a dozen times when I was in high school.
But visiting the Orlando Science Center with my children was an entirely different experience.
Being there and seeing the complete wonder in Roo's eyes was like visiting for the first time.
With Roo (Turtle was there too, she just mainly rode around on my hip) she wanted to visit every exhibit, touch every demonstration, feel every grain of sand in her fingertips.
And we did.
We spent 4+ hours exploring and crawling and playing.
And her favorite spot, the dinosaurs, of course! Roo was able to see life sized dinosaur bones before her very little eyes. She was able to dig for fossils and listen to dinosaurs roar.
She was also able to check out tiny alligators, turtles, spiders and snakes.
Then she was able to crawl around inside and under a tree in the Kid Town. Where she also built dams, pick plastic oranges and play in an underground tunnel.
The kid was in heaven.
The Orlando Science Center has four levels of exhibits, ranging from the dinosaurs to the an exhibit on evolution geared just for kids. There's also a huge theatre with an enormous screen to check out some scientific movies.
My personal favorite spot was this play room off to the side on the second floor. It had toys and cars to play in. Plus, I could put Turtle down and let her crawl. Plus, there were comfy chair for a nursing break.
The Orlando Science Center is the perfect place for younger kids to roam and discover. We definitely will be going back to make more memories.
Ticket prices are $17.00 per adult and $12.00 for kids.
The Orlando Science Center is located at 777 East Princeton Street, Orlando, Florida 32803. If you have any questions, you can call them at 407.514.2000
