As a former science teacher I vote this a plus for any family,wanting to expand the mind of children and yes even adults. This complex in the Anchorage Museum offers a variety of learning experiences. It will be easy to supervise your children since ther is open spaces. My 3 1/2 yr old grandchild found many things to explore and... More

It was well thought out with many points of interest for our children, it was stylish and attractive, highly interactive and educational.Most importantly, it was cooler and more fun than all the other imaginariums we've been to. Amazing that it is in a little city like Anchorage.

This place is amazing! All kids big ones and small ones and quite large and old ones would have a fantastic time here. You should bring your children here. They will learn things and have fun doing it! All kinds of experiments! Just plain fun. Take the kids and "test" all the things yourself! you will be glad you did!

There was plenty to keep our 23 month old and 4 year old grandsons busy for about 90 minutes. We were impressed! Looked like there were lots of activities for older children also.

The Imaginarium has been around since I was a kid in the 80's I believe. In that time, it has expanded and moved location to gain more space and add more attractions. There are a ton of fun and interactive activities that teach kids about everything from math, to physics, to animals, to history. There is a great toddlers area... More

Our boys enjoy it as well & the rest of the children; nothing big but good enough for even adults to some fun. One hour would be more than enough.

I'll keep this simple. If you're in Anchorage don't miss this especially if you have children of any age. Lots of interesting and fascinating stuff. The rest of the museum is great too!

I saw just as many adults playing as kids, it was nice that they had a planetarium too. I thought having an area for toddlers brilliant.

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
