Great instructor and such a great learning experience. Two Thumbs up. Imagionan is a great place for children to learn while having a good time.

I went into this museum by accident. It is near the Museum of the new south. I was so impressed that I came back. I loved it and wish I were a kid again.

I visited Imaginon to attend a reading and book signing by popular children's author Kate DiCamillo. I was impressed by the building, inside and out. I look forward to attending a theater production with my little one in the future.

My daughter came to hang out on the computers to play games and to pick up some books. She had a wonderful experience.

The librarians here are first rate and the collection is strong. It can be a little confusing, as the library has different sections for different ages. Ask for guidance and you will probably enjoy the time more.

Our 5 year old daughter always has a good time there. You can just go and enjoy the library and toys anytime. They also have children's theatre inside and they always have great plays for different ages of kids.
