Please note: the Sensory Mornings that were scheduled for March 23 and April 27 have been cancelled due to construction.
The Orlando Science Center will be making the fourth Monday morning of every month more accessible by providing a new more sensory friendly visit. This sensory friendly experience will allow our visitors a chance to visit select exhibit halls at quieter volume settings with more light. Visitors will also be able to enjoy a movie with softer volume and more ambient light in our theater. Free to Science Center members.
