I took my son to G. Wiz after hearing friends and other teachers talk about the museum and its hands-on approach to science. Well, I took my special-needs son and a friend there one Saturday afternoon. We were there during the Pirates and Buried Treasure exhibit and we were very excited about seeing it.
Excitement turned to disappointment as we went through the museum. Most of the hands-on portion of the museum is old and in dire need of updating. My son was less-than enthused as we went through, trying to get him excited about the experiments. He was bored and not really understanding some of the concepts.
Many of the exhibits were broken or in need of repair. The one mechanical portion of the Pirates and Buried Treasure exhibit was broken. The eatery was lacking and you can tell that they had a cafeteria there at one time.
This place is sad and not a great representation of the things we have to offer in Sarasota. My suggestion is to either sink more money into it and update it, or close it altogether.
