Mess Fest is Back!

Join us for the messiest weekend of the year at Orlando Science Center!

 What’s the best kind of mess? The kind YOU don’t have to clean up! Get hands-on with our ooiest, gooiest, messiest activities during Mess Fest! From slime time to fizzy paint, join us for some good clean fun during Mess Fest as we get creative with our favorite colorful and sensory-friendly activities.
