We went ahead and bought a family membership. The Imaginarium is one of our favorite places to go with the kids, especially when the weather is bad.

This was one of our last stops in Alaska and one of many highlights. We especially enjoyed the work by Alaskan artists. The variety of the collection was interesting and diverse.
