This isn't worth driving to Orlando for unless you are in the area already, but it was a nice break from the heat. If you have been to the Baltimore Science musuem it is pretty similiar. Lots of exhibits need reading to accomplish tasks, but there were a couple playrooms for little kids and a lot of space to run around. My kids (14 and 16) really liked the sculpture garden surrounding the museums, it is in a big parklike area with other museums. Be careful to park in the garage, apparently they tow you if you go to one musuem or the other and your car is not in the paid area (staff said so, I didn't see it happen but I moved my car to make sure) Go after 5 pm on friday or saturday and you get a substantial discount off daily rate and you will have plenty of time to see it all, we stayed 2 hours. Andromedea laser light show geared to little kids, we did not see any other show.
