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

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!
