We took 3 children here and they had an amazing time. They were so tired when we got home from all the fun they had. The favorite spot was the slanted room and the preschool area for our younger child was very fun too. Highly recommended this place

I bought this membership. I like the option that the kids have something where they can expand their minds. We did the lego robotics class. SO MUCH FUN!!!!. The kids had a blast. They always have a blast there. Between the simulator, water area, the magnet tower, the list goes on and on. The food in the food court is... More

I took a 2 and 3 year old and we spent hours in the little kid section. They have so much cute stuff to do! The only bummer is parking. Some of the parking garages can be validated by Imagination station and you get a few dollars off. I'd call and see which ones before going!

I have to honestly say after years of hearing the rave about the place .. I was very disappointed! It took 6 kids about 3 hours to be bored and the only thing that held the interest of the 8-9 year olds was the gravity house and bike. Such a disappointment. The place is hardly age appropriate for anyone under... More

I've been to a couple of other hands-on museums and... More

This place is great for young and old. I took my grand daughter here on Saturday and the whole family had a load of fun. We ended up buying a year membership and it will be used again and again. We stayed for 4 hours and did not see everything. So many areas to explore. My grand daughter was begging... More

We went yesterday with a one and three year old and they both had a blast. There is even a small kid area for the little ones. So much to do and both said they loved it. Worth every penny for a Saturday afternoon adventure!

Don't take the kids unless you want to stay for hours! The upside is that you will have active, happy children/grandchildren. Smiles all day.
