Downstairs is a medical clinic, grocery store, construction pit and more. You can even hop in the back of the Red Cross ERV (emergency response vehicle) and make a disaster relief meal.Upstairs you can enjoy the turtle hospital featuring Madonna and Yoko our two Russian tortoises, then visit the farm. Next you'll be able to slide back down to the first floor through the tree house fort.We believe children learn through play and hope you'll visit us at Imagination Place Children's Museum where we're play unplugged! « less

To be fair, my toddler could spend hours here and there's not really any indoor place in town that I could say the same for, so on that level it's recommended and we continue to take her from time to time. The place really does need to be refreshed, needs better lighting as it's very dim, and I agree with... More

This is a great place to bring kids. They will have a blast. I will agree that you do need to bring hand sanitizer. Some parents will let their unruly kids run wild but it is such a fun place. It held my sixteen months twins attention for two hours until they were ready to pass out in the car.

We took our very young son (<2) and admission was $6 each for adults and free for our son. As far as a cheap thing to do on a rainy day, it's ok. It is set up like a miniature town with a doctor office, train station, construction site, grocery store, etc. The quality of the exhibits is not up... More

I had friends visiting from out of town & we thought we would check this out with the kids. No staff at the entrance so we just walked in. It is set up like a little town. Toys in each of the "buildings" were filthy. Smelled musty and we did not see a staff member the entire 45 minutes we... More

Our second grade and then later our kindergarten classes both had field trips to The Imagination Place in Gadsden, AL. They had age appropriate activities for both grades. The staff was very organized and the children had fun! It would also be a great place to take the kiddos for a summer outing, since it's all inside - you can... More

The recently remodeled and expanded facilities are very clean, safe and super-kid friendly. Its a ideal place for hands-on learning...all in-doors...and easy to find. Make sure its on your vacation list or a place to visit if you are locally.

I started taking my grandson there at about 2 aand a half years old and it became one of his favorite places to go.He is 7 now and still enjoys it.Included with the ticket is the option to see the mini toy train display.It is a duplicate of the city of Gadsden al. in its earlier times.Very interesting.
