Great for little ones.

Kids enjoyed the hands on activities the most. But the shows were great too. Staff was adequate and facilities were clean. Will go back again!

I went with my two girls (2 years and 4 years old). to Imaginarium. This place is the best place to hangout. There are puzzles there that can keep someone with a high IQ twiddling his thumps for a while. So a great place for kids and adults. Its covered so works out well on a rainy day too. If... More

My kids had lots of fun. Enjoyed every bit of it. Many activities for kids under 10 - 12. It will keep them occupied for whole day.

Fantastic for the kids, many displays and hands on exhibits for the kids including touch tanks. My kids had a great time exploring, touching and learning.

My 5 and 9 year old spent 3 very enjoyable hours here. They loved feeding the sting rays, pretending to be broadcasters, and building a car they could ride. Definitely worth the price of admission. A few exhibits were closed, but that didn't impact our experience.

While overall the museum is geared toward younger kids, my son and I enjoyed our visit. As a Blue Star Museum partner, our admission as active duty military was FREE! It was a rainy day on our beach vacation and we thoroughly enjoyed the few hours we spent investigating the museum exhibits. My son especially loved all of the Newton's... More

Looking for things to do with a 10 year old to avoid the heat of the day and we found the Imaginarium. Some neat animals to see, "feed" the stingrays, see a live animal program, some really cool science hands-on type activities and you can feed some really hungry turtles outside. They offer a AAA discount too.

First time here, kinda expensive for such a small place and limited things to do. Even my kids also feel not entertain. A lots of thing there not working anymore or broken. Definitely need a lot of improvement. Potential for improvement.

Great escape for a hot afternoon. We took our children (4 + 8) and filled 3 hours. Lots of hands on exhibits. There is also an animal encounter. Some of the exhibits were lacking in information but other than that a great experience.
