Orlando Science Center

The Orlando Science Center is an engaging and interactive museum that encourages the discovery of new and exciting scientific and technological concepts for the whole family. There is a planetarium with a telescope, an IMAX theater that plays educational films, and a laser light show. The center of the museum displays an impressive giant tree that goes up four floors and is reminiscent of those that can be found in Florida’s wetlands. They also welcome those that are over 21 with exclusive evening experiences, such as the “Science of Wine” community event hosted in the museum’s outer balcony.

Orlando Shakespeare Theater

The Orlando Shakespeare Theater is one of its kind in the area because of its specialization in Shakespearian tales. However, the theater also presents quality new plays, musicals and even children’s shows. The theater has a partnership with local college University of Central Florida and when a customer purchases a ticket all the funds go to supporting the arts and enriching the creative community in Orlando. Don’t forget to check out the terrace in the back, which leads to the Firehouse Musuem. This hidden gem is home to a collection of old firetrucks. Amazing!
