We had a nice time. I found a coupon for $1 off per person. Not too expensive for several hours worth of fun.
It was cold outside, so this mostly indoor experience was perfect. Our whole group really liked the animal lab and the live animal show. It was great. The woman who gave the presentation is a marine biologist and was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

Beautiful fun hands on special place for everyone!
Our 7 1/2 yr old son had a blast! He fed the Rays and played and grew and climbed trees and enjoyed the animals and everything~! Thank you Imaginarium~ Great name fits the place Keeps your imagination open to surprises in life!

Went here today with my four year old nephew, and I'd say 95 percent of the exhibits didn't work, or were missing something vital to make them work. The reason I'd give it one star is for the sting ray touch tank, but other then that it seems like this place hasn't been updated since I last went when I was four.
Another point I'd make is that it was severely over-priced. Thirty four dollars for two adults and a toddler? We could have went to the pet store and had more fun then this, we left after 15 minutes.

So many hands-on exhibits including many live animals you can touch. Fun for all ages!
I recommend only spending a few minutes at each exhibit at first and then coming back to the ones your kids really enjoyed because there are so many things to do and learn. Biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, meteorology, oceanography... they have a lot!

Our boys (8 and 4) really enjoyed themselves. I think we spent about 2 hours there and then told them it was time to leave to go have lunch. Some of the exhibits were damaged but overall it was good and there were a lot of interactive exhibits.
I think it's about $10 / person which is probably average for this sort of thing (i.e. price of admission to a movie). However, if you have a membership at a museum that's part of ASTC, it's free admission for a family.
