Who can resist exploring a real cypress swamp that's air conditioned for comfort? Live turtles, snakes and gators bring the outdoors inside at this hands-on science centre located at Orlando's scenic Loch Haven Park. The centre's domed Crosby Observatory boasts the largest public refractor telescope in Florida and the planetarium shows first-rate adventure films on a mammoth screen.

Young children love KidsTown where they can pick and sort fake oranges, build dams and safely explore the nooks and crannies of a giant man-made tree. Older kids can guide a Mars Rover or manipulate stars and planets along a 2-D universe at the Our Planet, Our Universe exhibit.
