There were a lot of other cool things for older kids, including lots of various mind teaser games, a lot of different building materials, and a section on levers... More

This was a wonderful experience for my children ages 1, 5, 9. There was something exciting for each and every one of them. Great indoor activity on a rainy vacation day.

There was so much to do here, it really should be at least a 5 hours stop. The kids didn't even realize they were learning. It was fascinating. Don't miss the outdoor exhibits too. Also don't miss upstairs. Did I mention the Animal Lab-also a must see. Really, it was GREAT!

We bought the seasonal pass and brought our grandchildren two times in the week they stayed with us. Our grandchildren are 6, 4 and 2 years old. All three kids enjoyed the Imaginarium each time we brought them. There are so many hands-on things to keep their interest. There are cue balls that you crank up a ladder into a... More

I have been lucky enough to live in several different states one of them was Pennsylvania, great museums and lots of educational places for kids. SWFL does not have a lot to offer, the imaginarium is a small center with a few things for the kids to see. take the kids while they are small 5 or 6... older kids... More

Went here on a rainy day and while our 18 month old grandson enjoyed the play area for toddlers, the rest of the exhibits were a little old for him.

This place is terrible---waste of time!!!! Took our 8 yr old grandson here. There was absolutely nothing to see or do here. It took half an hour to see the whole thing. Our grandson wasn't allowed in the gift shop even though we were standing at the doorway. Staff was also terrible....

I have been a member for over 15 years. they always have changing exhibits and do a good job to keep it fresh and interesting. my daughters fav is the animal demo where they feature three animals and let kids get involved with questions and touching the animals.

We had a good time here. Plenty of things for the kids to do. We spent a couple of hours here and could have stayed longer. Animals, 3D short movie, and many hands on things made for an educational and enjoyable time.

Neat place for kids. Not huge, but it really kept my 9 and 4 year old boys entertained. There are so many hands on activities, my husband and I found ourselves playing just as much as our kids were!
