Nice place to spend an evening with your children. Laredo does not have enough places to do something different.

I love taking the children. There were many exhibits at a good price. Last time i wanted to go it was being renovated.

Since I visit Laredo once a month I like to take my nephew to the Imaginarium at the mall. There is not much to do in Laredo, but if you have kids the imaginarium is a great place to take them.

Have been a member of the Imaginarium of South Texas for two years now. My grandchildren love to visit whenever they are in town. Last week, my five grandchildren (all under the age of 6) were in Laredo and my husband and I were on grandparent duty. They just love to go to the Imaginarium. They have been there so... More

Visited the imaginarium recently with 4 children from a teenager to a toddler. They all had fun. Although the place is more geared toward the little ones. The older children enjoyed the snakes and tarantulas display and the younger ones loved watching the balls go through pipes. Everyone loved making bubbles and racing cars. It is a good place to...

We took my four-year-old son to the Imaginarium and he had a great time. He especially liked the systems of pipes and pulleys that took plastic balls up to the ceiling and dropped them down over the kids below. The racing cars and the bubble table were also big attractors for him. We're definitely planning on visiting again, probably on... More

They always have different activities during the seasons and even parents can get involved with their children as well. An... More

The museum is under new management and it shows. We miss the sand box in the summer and traveling exhibits from nationaly known science centers. Now it is much more of a children's museum without the science. Still there is a place for dramatic play and crafts to do. Best for kids 5 or 6 and under.

This is a pretty good little museum! Lots of opportunities for kids (and parents) to get creative as opposed to just pretend play. My kids and I created cars out of Legos and then raced them against other cars. We also made and decorated rockets using nothing but paper, tape, markers, and our imaginations, then we launched them inside a... More

A fun cross between a Children's Museum and a Science center. My kids aged 2 and 5 had a blast, but I saw kids up to about 5th or 6th grade having fun. Lots for parents to do together with their children. We will be back!
