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

Great place to go in the winter when it's cold outside. There are not only amazing science experiments and animals for them to see, but also some gross motor equipment for getting out the wiggles. Definitely a must do with kiddos!

My kids faces lit up when they saw all the awesome interactive exhibits in the Imaginarium. My daughter was enthralled with the "jumping" video and my son loved the volcano and the big bubble. We could have stayed for hours more.

Take the time to play with every exhibit. You will walk away with a wealth of science and physics knowledge! This place is fascinating. And don't miss the exhibit about passenger pigeons just outside the Imaginarium.
