Imagine That is big warehouse that was transformed into an entertaining, intellectually stimulating museum for children to explore and play. There are crafts, props, musical instruments, old (REAL) cars/truck/airplane and professional equipment (dentist chair, news desk, ballet studio, veterinary equipment), to name a few. We had our son's 4th birthday party there, and the event was wonderful. Because my son... More

Thank you to Karisa, Tony and Deborah for making our lil' princess, London Victoria, 1st birthday party the very best ever. We had children from 1 - 89 and everyone had a great time.

We visited on a Sunday with our four- and six-year-old boys. This was place was so poorly run, it was almost laughable. The arts and crafts section was being used mostly by a bunch of 30-something adults who were inexplicably hoarding all the paints (which were a mess) and craft items (ditto). They didn't even seem to have any kids.... More

I took my kids here 20 to 25 years ago, and although they have changed locations, it doesn't look as if much else has changed. It is still a great place for kids to have fun, explore, play and interact with other children and my granddaughter really enjoyed it. But it could definitely use some paint and a general overhaul.... More

Thank you for your comments. Certainly we appreciate you coming to visit again with a different generation of children. It is so wonderful to see young parents come visit us and reminisce about when they were "little"and visited us. Now these parents are visiting with their children--such a wonderful way to go down memory lane. Amazing that you remembered that... More

We hosted our 2-year old's birthday party here over the weekend. The staff was friendly and accommodating, even having the foresight to package our child's gifts in non-descript black bags so as not to be tempting to wandering peanuts. The exhibits were clean, but there's a lot of wear and tear on certain pieces. It did keep my kid occupied... More

They have a nice party set up for ages 2-5, but there isn't all that much there that isn't already in many kids' basement or at any playground so probably not worth the $22 (kid+1parent) for an individual visit.

My 2 year old boy loves this place a lot. There are lot of activities for kids to explore such and learn - such as the music room, groceries shopping, arts, pretend post office, hospital, etc. We had his 2nd birthday party here and they did a great job in organizing puppet shows and taking care of the party supplies.
