SARASOTA, FL --- After 23 years of serving the community G-WIZ, an iconic science museum in downtown Sarasota, is seemingly going out of business. 

The science museum was a popular spot for many parents on the Suncoast because it offered their kids a fun learning environment.  But for the past year the facility has been closed. 

According to a letter sent to G-Wiz from the city of Sarasota, they have 30 days to get things back up and running.  If not, the city will terminate its building lease agreement with the organization.  The news is disheartened to many in the community. 

Coming up on ABC 7 at 5 you will hear from city officials and residents on the matter.
