Science Museum

“The range of exhibits is "designed to inspire curiosity and exploration" according to the Orlando Science Center themselves, while there’s also a range of shows, presentations, and hands-on interactions throughout that aim to "bring the exhibits to life" – great for the whole family. Highlights include Nature Works, a huge space on the ground floor that details much of the surrounding Central Florida wildlife and ecosystems. There’s also KidsTown, a miniature town full of fun and interactive games. For the budding palaeontologists out there, DinoDigs is where you can uncover fossilised dinosaurs and inspect huge dinosaur eggs ”
