Great museum and places to visit, fantastic staff who kept our 8 year old grandson interested all the time. Balanced program with lots of things to learn and remember.

This is a wonderful program for those with a scientific interest. The faculty are excellent, the facilities at the Virginia Living Museum are top-notch and the entire program is geared toward keeping children and their grandparents very interested.

Mary from Glen Allen, VA Number of programs attended: 7
Date attended: 06/22/14 - 06/27/14
This is an excellent program which worked well for a range of children from 7.5 to 11. It was active, but not too. The presenters are wonderful, the museum is fascinating and everyone of all ages had an opportunity to learn something new. I highly recommend it. (I have been on three intergenerationals with my grandchild.)
