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

My 3 year old Grandson loves to visit the museum. It is so child friendly, he can move from exhibit to exhibit and touch and explore. This past time he was fascinated with the hairdryers and ping pong ball area. Learning about the air in take and how turning the dryer on high produced a different result than low. He... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident. Our 1.5 and 4 year-olds were both tickled by all of the cool exhibits and activities. There are arts & crafts, cool pretend areas, bunny rabbits, and building centers. This is a fun place to spend the day. The place is very clean and the staff is friendly. We highly recommend this place!

As grandparents we brought our 3 yr. old granddaughter who loved it. So much to keep her busy and it all kept her attention. It seems there is enough for all ages. It is two stories so you do get a workout, especially with a fast mover. Little café was a nice break. It is a well thought out place... More

My husband and I recently visited this small, child-friendly museum with our son, daughter-in-law and 13 month old granddaughter. At first, the museum seemed very loud as we entered, but we became accustomed to the noise pretty quickly. There were plenty of interactive activities for all three generations to enjoy. I would say that this museum is best suited for... More

Perfect rainy day place. Tons of stuff for the kids to see and do. Brought our 2 & 3 year old kids. They went nuts for 3 hours.

Brought my three-year-old son here on a free museum pass. Spent a nice three hours or so and managed to hit all of the attractions. Small enough to do in a few hours but large enough to keep him interested. Would return.

This museum is definitely geared toward the younger crowd - I would recommend baby - 3rd grade. They have a nice ice cream parlor - but beware - it is in the entrance area so you cannot avoid it. Plan on disappointed kids if you don't want ice cream!

The kids love it. Lots to do. Appropriate for a variety of ages. I always think they should do some updates, small things, like replace the plastic fish in the water tank with ones that actually have magnets.

Our pre-school grandaughter had a great time playing in the educational, interactive fun zones. I think kids ages 4 to 10 would enjoy what they have to offer.
