    Just had my son's 3rd birthday party at the Childrens museum and it was awesome. Staff was great and the room was perfect. We are members there, so we knew it would be a hit and all the other kiddos loved it. We live in Seattle, but we make the trip to the Everett museum because it is so much better than the Seattle one.

    The only reason this is not a 5 star review is:
    - 90 minutes goes FAST. It would be nice to have a 2 hour option. With 15 min set up, it was a little fast to get everyone in fed and celebrated in just an hour with another 15 min...Read More

    This multi-level establishment is a great place to take my 4 year old, but my 9 year old also finds plenty to keep him occupied. The bottom floor holds a great independent play art studio and a good construction zone that has held soft blocks, conjoining wall panels, or car pieces at different times. The roof holds a play area that you might find at a park, with a decent sized playground equipment, a dig area, and other miscellaneous activities.

    The main floor is their main show, so to speak. Water play. Toy trains. Air tubes. Music makers....Read More

    There are tons of stuff for kids to play with here. From the mini system, complete with water cannons, vortex machines, to the model trains, busses, farm, firetrucks, airplane, we could easily have spent hours here.

    This place is probably ideal for kids ~18 months - 5 years. For younger children you wont be able to just set them down and crawl around, except for 1 place which has a semi-padded firetruck they can crawl around on.

The only reason this is not a 5 star review is:
- 90 minutes goes FAST. It would be nice to have a 2 hour option. With 15 min set up, it was a little fast to get everyone in fed and celebrated in just an hour with another 15 min to clean up afterwards . Some kids were rushed through eating :(
- There was an additional couple of kids who came (unexpected) the day of the party, and we had purchased the (great) party bags for the kiddos, but they were not able to make any additional party bags day of since their birthday coordinator is a M-F position. So sadly, we had to deal with a couple of sad kids who didn't get a party bag.

Over all, a fabulous experience, and one we will happily do again

This multi-level establishment is a great place to take my 4 year old, but my 9 year old also finds plenty to keep him occupied. The bottom floor holds a great independent play art studio and a good construction zone that has held soft blocks, conjoining wall panels, or car pieces at different times. The roof holds a play area that you might find at a park, with a decent sized playground equipment, a dig area, and other miscellaneous activities.

The main floor is their main show, so to speak. Water play. Toy trains. Air tubes. Music makers. Play vet clinic and restaurant. Treehouse with reading center. Clean, high quality environment to take the kids for extended play time.

Their activity calendar is full of decent activities that could stand to be a little cheaper for members, but I suppose it's not a non-profit agency and the facilitators need extra scratch for the effort.

There are two glaring reasons in my opinion to knock it down a star. The first results from their success; it's spectacularly busy on evenings and weekends. If you're a professional parent like me, just take the kids during the weekday mornings. If not, good luck. The second is the lack of wandering supervisory employees. If it's busy, there can be kids on top of kids. The parents often let their kids run wild while they sit and tap away on their phones or chat with their friends. I've had to repeatedly peel apart kids and ask kids to behave around my little one or others' little ones. It would help if an employee wandered through and helped settle any inter-child skirmishes. Parents should do it, yes, but they don't.

They don't change a lot about the exhibits in this place, except for a large room that holds different themed activities (currently a campground setup). However, a membership is usually worth the money because the kids can visit different parts of the museum on different days. The single ticket prices would make me hesitant to bring the whole family without that membership. You don't want to spend $50 and have your kids melt down after an hour.

Have fun at Imagine!
