The area surrounding the museum is a bit on the unsavory side until you drive 5 minutes away and there's a beautiful lake. The museum is on the corner of two one way streets and parking was not easily marked. Parking lot is not on Pleasant Street. I can't remember the name of the other one way street, but parking...

For younger children ages 1-10. Lots of creative activities located on 3 separate floors that will keep your child engaged for hours. Great place for birthdays, they provide a special room and all you need to bring is the cake and food. Parking can be limited but you can also park on the street. There is a place to order... More

Good place for hands-on experience for kids. Quite educational. Small admission and lots of fun for little ones.

Imagine Nation is a great place for kids! Loads of hands on activities: get in a child-size bubble, play different types of drums and instruments, build, play with water, climb, art center, dress up, puzzles, just to name a few! The facility is very open for families with strollers or children with physical disabilities. You can also end the day... More

Interactive and fun activities for the kids of all ages. You get carried away and don't even realize you've been there for four hours! Parking is tricky, unless you are lucky enough to find one of the prized spaces on the street in front of the museum.

This place is a nice little day out for the kiddies. The ESPN, rockwall climb, and slide was a hit with my two boys age 5 and 2. They have alot of hands on activities where kids can learn while playing and an outdoor play area. We enjoyed our visit. Staff was nice and informative.

There are lots of fun and interactive things to do for kids in this museum. The exhibits are in large open areas instead of individual rooms per exhibit. Parking was confusing because we had to drive around the block to get in their parking lot.

We have visited the Imagine Nation museum a few times. My 5 year old and 2 year old have a great time every time. There is a little bit of everything in the museum, animals, art, music, building, free play, ect. The museum is clean and fun. A great enriching environment for younger children. The only downfall is that parents... More
