KidsTown is a spot where children under 48" tall can explore their world in a town designed just for them. Fun abounds for even the littlest scientist in this pint-sized town.

There’s a new addition to Orlando Science Center’s KidsTown exhibit hall!
Imagination Playground, an innovative playspace concept by Rockwell Group, is a portable playground made of lightweight foam pieces. Loose parts of unique shapes and sizes foster creativity and design, allowing children to build anything they might imagine. Children of all ages can enjoy creating countless settings and scenarios, animals, robots and more with the kid-friendly, eco-friendly foam.
Through Imagination Playground, deep learning concepts such as critical thinking and problem solving are developed and strengthened. Little ones have fun while also "building" on skills that will give them a competitive advantage in school and one day, a career. As your child imagines, designs and creates, they develop an understanding of balance and other STEM concepts.
