If you're interested in science, you'll love the Orlando Science Center, even if you already know the all the stuff presented inside.

This museum really manages to make science seem fun, and there are lots of activities that bring kids (and not only) closer to real, practical science, not the boring physics formulas you had to learn in high school.

There's an exhibit space, an observatory, a giant screen domed theater for films and planetarium shows, a café and a store. Reptiles, dinosaur skeletons and the explanation of such concepts as electricity and magnetism, lasers, soundwaves, and nature’s forces.

Altogether a very interesting and entertaining place that will keep you occupied for a good half a day.
