“Great Place for Babies and Kids”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

I took my 1 year old daughter here and she absolutely loved it. Imaginon was really lovely and educational. She had a great time, but not over stimulation like some kid attractions may do. There were tons of books and interesting manipulative toys for her to enjoy. I highly recommend. And the best part is...it was free! And it is right across the street from a great market place.

“An uptown gem!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

What an amazing children's library! We brought our 3 & 5 yr olds here on a Saturday morning and they had a blast. Excellent story time with one of the librarians; a musical "petting zoo" with lots of great instruments brought in by symphony members; and a fun exhibit of Arthur's World. A great morning of fun...absolutely FREE!

“Fantastic Outing, Fun, Free”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Took our children, turning 5yrs & 6yrs in Sept, we arrived early on a Saturday to enjoy Arthur's world uncrowded. Then moved on to the children's library. Then finally explored the two remaining levels. We were there 2.5hrs and the time flew by. Even got our parking ticket validated. No money invested but a wealth of bonding & exploration with our kids. They loved it. We loved it. This place is awesome. Don't miss it!!

“Such an amazing place!”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

We visited ImaginOn in July 2013 with my 12 year old cousin and 20 month old daughter - there was tons for both girls to do! I was so impressed by this "library". It is so much more than a library! We really could have spent an entire day there - the Arthur exhibit was a favorite for my little one..this is a definite must do if you're in the area with young kids looking for something free (and cool inside!) to do!
