So Much to Learn

we took our grandchildren here in November. They loved it so much that membership was given as a Christmas present.

Very disappointed with this place. Very unorganized, small, with some of the accessories/toys missing. Place needs cleaning.

Although the concept is wonderful, this museum is poorly laid out, very few of the interactive exhibits actually work. Compare this to the Children's Science Museum where Mr. Golisano's business is located and you will find a world of difference.

We had a great time at this venue. I researched in advance about the place and it was really over my expectations. The place provides educational fun for kids and has the plus of being very well maintained. Volunteers working there were all the time keeping the place organized. The colors and illumination of the place provide great pictures.

I have been taking my grandkids here for some time now. This past time though I noticed it was no longer "age appropriate" for them...the youngest of the group was 10 and no one was "interested" anymore...except me of course....

This is the place to take grandchildren and your children. It is an amazing experience with a wide assortment of "hands on" activities.

My 12 yr old grandson spotted the museum near the sports complex. I checked website to see if it was appropriate for his age. Their website said, ages 1 to 14 plus something for adults. When we got there, we found many things for kids 1-8, lots of hands on and interactive exhibits along with arts and crafts. However, there... More
