The Museum of Discovery and Science is one of the largest museums of its kind in Florida. The museum features its own AutoNation IMAX theater, and shows 3-D IMAX films. The museum also features a number of 'ecoscapes', as well as a simulated ride to Mars, a simulated airboat ride in the Everglades and a MaxFlight airplane simulator.
Among the more popular aspects of the museum are the quantity and variety of Floridian animal species on display. Other attractions include a Discovery Center for ages 7 and under; the "Go Green" exhibit; and "Runways to Rockets," which includes airplane simulators and information about space. The 'Great Gravity Clock' in front of the entrance is one of only three in the world.
