This place is like a dream for children. There are so many things for them to do. And I love that so much of it is educational and displayed in such a way that the children can actually learn something. For example, the giant bubbles that teach about water tension. Amazing! My little one who is an iPad addict can... More

Great place for the kids to spend hours to explore science and enjoy themselves. Parents can take some rest.

The Imaginarium is part of the Anchorage Museum and my teen boys loved it. Hands-on, fun science. Reasonably priced. The ticket to Anchorage Museum covers admission into the Imaginarium as well.

That's the most helpful thing I can tell you. The Imaginarium is inside the Anchorage Museum. It was never really clear from my guidebooks and the internet that it was physically in the Museum-- you pay the Museum entrance fee and then make your way to the Imaginarium section. My two kids are approximately 6 years old and we spent... More

This is mostly for kids. The staff is really good, and the environment is very safe. If you have kids, they will love to spend a different afternoon, besides, they can learn so much from it. Well, I did... lol

Kids of all ages can do lots of hands on experiments here. Very cool. Giant bubbles and kinetic energy, giant ball drop, all kinds of cool science stuff, and plenty of benches and bathrooms nearby, too.

We loved the science exhibits here and went back time after time to really explore them. Build an earthquake-resistant house, make waves that hit a tidal flat, make a hot air balloon rise, use pulleys to pull yourself up with one hand.... Visit earlier in the day and when the weather's nice to avoid the crowds. Use your membership at... More

This is inside the Museum, and it is a great hands on place for kids and adults of all ages. Our one year old had a blast along with the "two Adults" in tow! Great way to get some energy release.

What a great way to spend a few hours with your children. They can experience and learn from science first hand. Admission is included in the cost of museum admission. A must do for families with kids!
