We visited the center yesterday and found that there were not any noticeable new things to see since visiting the center many years ago. We mostly enjoyed feeding the fish and turtles in the pond.

I wouldn't recommend this place for kids over the age of 10. I think they would be bored. Overall, the facility seems a little in need of a reno. Wasn't the cleanest of places either considering the number of kids roaming around like the little...More

My name is Georgia. I’m eight years old. I liked playing in the game room. It was so much fun. I really liked the virtual reality. I loved that too. They had a lot of scientific stations. We love the IMAG History & Science Center.

I agree a 16 year old may be on the edge but there are some exhibits I believe would be still of interest to a 16 year old
