I suppose that this museum is geared to children but my wife and I had a great time playing with the scientific principles exhibits.

Lots of kids really enjoying themselves. Great to let kids think outside the box. Very interesting exhibits even for adults.

I visited with my Granddaughter and we had a great time, she tried out everything and asked if there was more anywhere else in the museum. After visiting the rest of the museum we stopped by her favorite activities one more time before leaving.

The Imaginarium is a ton of fun, even for adults. Science is always cool and the imagination is a way to let out your inner child applying science in fun ways. My personal favorite is playing with the bubbles

Our toddler found lots to be entertained by. I can only imagine how much fun older kids have. My husband and I had a blast too. Highly recommend.

Took tour of museum first with 15 and 7 yr old. Ended in the discovery center and OMG! My kids loved it!!! I think it was the first time I saw my 15 yr old smile in a long time! They LOVED the bubbles of all things!! They didn't want to leave. Great part of our trip to Anchorage.

We spent three hours and they wanted to stay longer! Within our ticket price, we also got interactive shows and a planetarium show. As a biologist, I loved all the scientific information and exhibits within the museum. We will be back and I recommend to everyone!

Lots to touch and play with: bubbles, hot air balloon, vertical chair, etc. There's so much to do outside of the Imaginarium too: Spark lab, planetarium, and the 5 and under area.

This is by far the best part of the museum and the kids enjoyed it. I was disappointed to see that they no longer let the children touch the sea stars or other aquatic life in the the tide pool exhibit; the giant bubbles were a big hit as was the tsunami maker. Most of the science was well above... More
