The Orlando Science Center offers something for everyone — and deals to fit most budgets too. We get a lot of questions about discounted Orlando Science Center tickets. There are some discount days, monthly free admission weekends, as well as memberships for a way to save if you plan to go several times throughout the year. Read below for details!
The general admission price is still pretty reasonable considering you can spend the entire day exploring the four floors of OSC, hands-on exhibits, KidsTown, stargazing in the observatory, encountering live animals, and watching films in the Digital Adventure Theater and Dr. Phillips CineDome.
Free entry the first weekend of the month
You can enjoy free entry to the Orlando Science Center the first weekend of every month with the Bank of America and Merrill Lynch’s Museums On Us program. Just show your Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card Saturday or Sunday.
These Orlando museums are free the first weekend of every month:
- Orlando Museum of Art
- Mennello Museum of American Art
- Orange County Regional History Center
- Orlando Science Center
$10 Admission Day
OSC offers a special $10 Day usually twice a year — on a Sunday in September and in April. They reveal the day a couple weeks prior (we will announce it here too). Limited tickets are available so people are encouraged to purchase them in advance and online before they’re gone.
Extra summer hours
Get more bang for your buck this summer during Science After Sundown. On Fridays and Saturdays, the Science Center stays open until 11:00 p.m.
Science Night Live
This popular 21+ adult’s night out features everything you love about OSC…without the kids. Added bonus: admission is cheaper! Limited tickets are available in advance and online for $16.
Depending on how often you plan to visit, a membership can be a great way to save on admission. Along with free entry for an entire year, you’ll also receive some great benefits like free parking (usually $5 per visit), free entry to special events, early access to KidsTown, unlimited films and more. Another perk: reciprocal membership access to 350 museums and science centers across the country.
