    Fun, informative experience
    If you're in the neighborhood, it's a cute, free ($5 donation requested, not required) short show, under 30 minutes. It's high-tech and tells the story of how SCAD began. (SCAD buildings are all over Savannah; they're a big part of the story). When it ends, you enter a gift shop of items all made by SCAD students, faculty, and staff. A nice way to spend 30-45 minutes. Great for elementary-age children through adults.

    Worth the Stop
    Really fun and free way to spend half an hour, even if you don't have an express interest in the school! I had read that this interactive presentation was worth seeing, so my family stopped in to see it. It was entertaining even for small children (though they got a little scared during the "storm" during the show). Really interesting and creative way to introduce people to SCAD. We enjoyed it!

    Fun, free and indoors.
    Such a cool experience to see! It was so hot on our trip that we wanted to find something to do indoors. The best part is that’s it’s free! They do ask for a donation to their school, so donate if you can. After leaving my daughter now wants to attend in the future. I don’t want to give away much, but you start off in a room, then move into another Pom to hear the story of the school’s history, but in a 4D experience.

    Inspiring
    Beautifully inspiring story about how our dreams can come true with hard work. It really did feel like a Disney story as you wait for a ride. I’m the end it was a huge advertisement for the school, but still worthwhile seeing.

    Great stop and free!
    This was a pretty fun stop. The "story" was very well put together and we found the SCAD story to be interesting. The students who ran it were very nice. We loved looking through the store - some really cool and unique items made by SCAD. Recommend!

    Informative quality presentation.
    Didn't know anything about scad before visiting savannah. I now have an appreciation of the importance of scad when it was first conceived through to now. Very high end and quality presentation of the story. A few friendly students to show us around and an interactive room at the end that we were invited to explore. Very well done.

FYI, SCAD is the Savannah College of Art and Design. This "immersive 4D experience through SCAD history" (per their website) lasts about 30 min. It was well done & enjoyable. I think it really encourage creative, artistic people to go to SCAD. Heads up that you should make a RESERVATION ahead of time, as they only allow up to 20 guests in at a time. Online, you can see which days & specific times are available. Lastly it's free with a suggested donation of $5.

Incredible tale with amazing visuals. And entry is free. Any donations are completely voluntary and they only ask for $5.00! A wonderful and extraordinary 30 minute experience.

Really nicely produced set of multimedia presentations on the school’s history and design. It shows the quality of their work. But it’s mostly interesting if you want to go to SCAD. Otherwise you are Paying (uh, making a “suggested” contribution) to watch a marketing video.

A very animated presentation of the founding and purpose of SCAD. I had never heard of SCAD and now I’m inspired. Impressive and entertaining

I kept reading all the great reviews and couldn't understand why this would be so highly rated. Now I know. It really is an amazing experience. I just wish I was 17 when I saw it! Inspiring to a 50 year old... I can't imagine how it would effect a HS aged person!

What a wonderful way to interact with and learn more about SCAD which is so integral to Savannah’s story. Definitely Disneyesque and will even entertain children. BTW you can sit on the benches around the posts if you get tired.
