We had our daughter’s 3rd birthday party in early Nov. Our daughter & all her little friends had a blast- stayed almost to closing since it was afternoon party. We are glad that we celebrated our daughter’s special day at such an innovative, creative & fun-filled place. We must thank friendly, considerate & helpful Karisa for making our party successful...

Had a great time for my daughters 2nd birthday party. Lots for the kids to do, we could have stayed all day if it weren't for nap time. Especially enjoyed the wooden ship with the slide and arts and crafts area. Will definitely return! Clean, nice staff, a great day!

I visited Imagine That! on a recent Saturday afternoon with my three young children (4, 3, 1). Admission is charged for all that enter, including adults. We had a coupon for a free adult pass, with paid child's admission. My young kids had a blast. Their favorite area was the "grocery store/diner" and "dance" areas. On the ride home the... More

The museum isn't really one, unless you use the aged equipment as the items from the past. Much to see and do in a small space. Depending on your child's interests the special area can be a lot of fun. Climb on a 1960's fire truck, see a tv studio and read the weather. Other "stations" provide glimpses of a... More

As far as us being in need of some sprucing up, we do disagree with this statement. We have several new exhibits and we are... More

Imagine That!!! In Florham Park, NJ is a fun and imaginative play space ideally suited for children ages 2-7. Located in a business park area of town, the entrance is tucked away and might easily be missed. The building is a converted industrial warehouse that offers imaginative and pretend play activities for children to stay occupied for hours on end.... More

Two adults and two children cost $45 to get in to what is essentially a McDonald's play place...the place is small and the "attractions" are old. Save your money and just go to the park instead...

This is not really a museum; more of a play place. My kids (7 and 4) had fun playing on the vintage fire truck, VW bug, and four-seater airplane. Other than that, almost nothing you can't do, see, or make at home with some empty boxes, yarn, paint, glue, scraps and buttons and some imagination. If you simply must go,... More

Got a groupon and had to pay the tax and for 2 adults! We were in there for about 45 minutes. Duck tape on things, no puppets for the puppet show, broken brushes for fossil dig, upgrades needed throughout! Dump!
