About these ratings

The kid-friendly interactive exhibits at the Museum of Discovery & Science include Florida Ecoscapes, where visitors can see animals from alligators to bats and bees, or Gizmo City, where young ones can learn how robots, car engines and more function. Before you leave, make time to catch a flick in the AutoNation IMAX Theater. Films that are shown here include educational movies and mainstream flicks.

Although some writers say that adults can find entertainment here, some recent travelers disagree. With the option to purchase tickets to just the museum, just the IMAX, or a combination of both, one TripAdvisor user says, "just go see an IMAX movie and don't waste your time in the museum, unless you have a young child with you. We are often 'big kids' but this did not bring the big kid out of us at all." Discounts on admission are available for senior citizens and children 12 and under. Recent travelers suggest looking for parking in the back of the building where it is cheaper than the main lot in the front.
