Great educational place for the children of all ages. We visited it once when had to stay in Plattsburgh for one day. My 5 years old son didn't want to leave. So many interesting things to do for little explorers. Highly recommend if you are looking for things to do in Plattsburgh with your kiddos.

I went with a group of 3 & 4 year olds. They had a blast!! Everything there is hands on for them and the staff help explain how to use some of the exhibits.

The Imaginarium and the Kids' Station (located at Champlain Valley Transportation Museum) merged. The new location has all the old favorites and lots of new exhibits for kids of all ages.

We went with our two Grandchildren ages 3 & 2. They seemed to have a great time. Only half of the museum was open due to a move they were doing. It reminded me of an oversized daycare. Seemed good for pre-school to fourth grade. I thought the help staff would interact with the kids. It would have made a... More

A fun and safe learning place for kids. Focused more for kids 12 and under. The Science Lab and craft area is fun for the older kids, while everyone enjoys the large scale castle and dress up area. The Dinosaur dig (sand box) is a big hit with my 2 year old. My 5 year old loves the dark room.... More

3 of my Grandchildren love to go, to them there is lots to do hands on. A tad pricey for a family to go but good entertainment for a couple hours.

I brought my two girls today. They are ages 2 and 4. The lady brought us around the place for a tour. There is a ton of stuff to play with for all ages. Everything is second hand, but kids do not care. They really put a great effort into this place. I will definitely bring my girls back.

I have never seen such a charming place for children. It is truly amazing what they have put together here. My little ones are 1 and 4 and they absolutely loved it. They spent close to 4 hours in the play areas. The science laboratory looked amazing. My 4 year old and I had a great time in the arts... More
