The Orlando Science Center

Most cities have a hands-on science center that features interactive exhibits illustrating basic science. Most of them are geared towards schoolkids, and for me the big draw is usually the IMAX films. But the Orlando Science Center also had an exhibit of live Florida wildlife and a pretty nice dinosaur exhibit. Here are some photos from a visit.
