This place is awesome...so many wonderful things for kids to see and do. Lots of fuel for the imagination, and highly educational in the wondrous way! There's a supermarket, diner, building site, tv studio and costume department to name but a few. Science, technology, exploration...More

Hi Kate, The booking you held was unfortunately not for an official Imaginosity birthday party. You made multiple bookings through the website, which does not constitute a birthday party. An official birthday party was booked for that date and time and thus we were left...More

Hi Marie, I think you may have the wrong page as Imaginosity is a Children's Museum. Regards, Tracy Caffrey, Customer Service Manager Imaginosity.
