My grandson is enrolled in this school and currently attending summer camp. He is constantly being beat up by other boys. One boy pinched him on his neck and the other boy punched him in the face leaving a bruise. It hurt so bad they put ice o the area but failed to notify his mother of the incident!!!It is quite obvious that the children in this program are unsupervised. The bulling boys (2 different boys) are not punished but instead they punish the victim (my grandson) by not allowing him to play while the offender continues to play!!! I believe they discriminate against my grandson because is half black and half white. When he graduated from VPK, he was the only child (the others in his class are white) who did not have a certificate of completion. The executive director lied and said they "must have left it upstairs". After I complained to the executive director, they quickly created a sloppy certificate to give to him. The next day another "teacher" inadvertently apologized for not having made him a certificate explaining that it was merely an oversight on their part. Clearly the organization's leadership (the executive director I spoke with the night before) lied about having "left the certificate upstairs." If they lie about something like this what else do they lie about. Do they keep the children in their school safe from bulling practices? Do they appropriately supervise the children? Do they even care? The museum is great but the child care and schooling program housed in the museum is substandard! BEWARE if you plan on using this program for child care or schooling!!

Well, all of the ads and brochures make it sound like this place is just huge... It's not. You can easily see everything in around an hour (less if your kids are over 10 years old). They do charge a lot for adults -- way too much in fact. This place was definitely built for younger kids but they'll strip $10+ away for every adult that walks in the door... Add to it that a few of the exhibits were broken. All-in-all, you're much better off saving your money for Wonder Works over in Orlando. It was around the same price, much larger, and designed for a greater age range of patrons. We will not visit again.

Great for the kids. Would like to see something for the adults like WiFi, a place to sit, and coffee! A few hours gives the kids enough time to play.

My 8 years old daughter did not like this place. She found it very boring. Staff generally tried to be very friendly except for the receptionist who was VERY RUDE AND DISCRIMINATORY. Don't waste your money because the entrance fee didn't worth the place.
