Looking for a fun date night idea? Visit Orlando Science Center on Fridays and Saturdays during our extended summer hours through August 13!

During our extended hours the Crosby Observatory is open (weather permitting), you can catch a Laser Light Show, all of our exhibits are open, and we’re screening Hollywood films! And the best part? Everything is included in general admission!

Crosby Observatory

Peer through the powerful 10-inch lens of the refractor telescope to view the planets and stars! This summer you may be able to see Jupiter, Mars, or even Saturn! This astronomical experience doesn’t happen every day but it may be possible to view these planets during our extended hours. This one-of-a-kind custom-built telescope, along with several smaller scopes, are available at select times for solar and night sky viewing.

Laser Light Shows

Light and sound merge for a uniquely classic rock experience as laser light shows return to the Orlando Science Center’s Dr. Phillips CineDome for a limited engagement. This summer, relive the excitement or make new memories with classic rock hits and a new show lineup including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and U2!
