Our young boys (4 and 6) had a great time in this well stocked indoor play space for children. Perfect for a rainy day. There are lots of options for open ended play. Favorites included the fire truck, the imagination playground, and the tennis ball shooter. The worst thing is you can't bring coffee into the play area. You can drink it in the gift shop, however, which is what we did.

They have revamped it! My daughter has a year pass and it's really great for those rainy days.

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.

Great place for a young child to explore freely (with parent shadowing). Its a kids museum, not a starbucks for the reviewer who just wants wifi and coffee. A couple of the digital exhibits were out of order, but overall the best exhibits can't break anyway. The music playing in the background was an enjoyable mix. The staff were all friendly and plentiful. Someone actually complained that they yawned?! Give me a break! Admission is under $10/person - reasonable. And if you get their annual pass you pay nothing for over a thousand museums around the country. Compared to MOSI, Great Ex is 5 stars - compared to the New Hampshire Children's Museum, Great Ex is 4 stars.

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!!
