  • This place was amazing for all ages. I even learned some new things. The best part is it's very affordable and they also have small push carts with storage for small children so if you forget to bring your stroller, you're in luck. They have a lunch room with venting machines and seating as well.

  • Brought a coupon and ended up spending only $20 all together for 2 admissions and 2 tickets to feed the stingrays. The museum is very kid friendly and offers many scheduled activities throughout the day such as 3d movies, virtual reality experiences, and live animal encounters. The rest of the museum has small hands on activities designed to teach kids about the history of fort myers, laws of gravity, weather, etc.. I found that many of these little exhibits needed to be updated or fixed so that they would be usable. Aside from the 3d movies, stingrays feeding, and vr, we probably spent about an hour exploring the rest of the museum.

  • It was pretty neat. My 7 year old daughter enjoyed it. The movie they showed wasn't interesting to either of us (it was just a movie with a guy and dinosaurs - not educational just a short movie). The stingray touching was awesome though along with everything else. We also loved the big ship fish tank.

  • Haven't been here in years. A lot has changed. My younger kids loved the touch tank, feeding the big gold fish and turtles, and the sting rays. They like playing in the water. They also liked the science of motions stuff. My son liked it the most. Played for hours. We will come back and tell friends.

  • We love the imaginarium. Our yearly pass is so worth it since we homeschool. We visit often and avoid the crowds by going early. It is a great supplement to our curriculum. 3D virtual reality experience is fun and so is the water table. My 7 year old loves it! Pack a lunch, there isn’t much in terms of food.
