We recently visited the imagine nation children's museum and we fell in love with it. It is an amazing children's museum with many hands on exhibits and activities for the whole family to enjoy. I just wish that they'd add a dinosaur exhibit because my son is completely in love with dinosaurs and kept asking if they had any.

The place is small but we'll organized seems to be for smaller children. The day I went they were making popcorn which triggered the fire alarm and outside we all went. The activities are short and don't grab attention to older kids above let's say 10. I think I have to opt to look for a more age correct place... More

Great place for young and young-at-heart to have a fun time together. I will also say that I am a bit bias as my sister works here. Her imagination comes thru every exhibit they have.

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.
