Right place

Nice place to spend an evening with your children. Laredo does not have enough places to do something different.

For the price of admission, doesn't offer much for kids to do.It was just recently remodel, It looks like they went to thrift store to find toy s for the kids to play with.

My kids love going. It's not a large area, but it's enough for the kids to have a good time. They have odd hours, though, so be sure to check the website. One time I went when the site said it would be open, and it wasn't. There was no explanation on the door, either. Very frustrating and disappointing. Call... More

I love taking the children. There were many exhibits at a good price. Last time i wanted to go it was being renovated.

Since I visit Laredo once a month I like to take my nephew to the Imaginarium at the mall. There is not much to do in Laredo, but if you have kids the imaginarium is a great place to take them.

Have been a member of the Imaginarium of South Texas for two years now. My grandchildren love to visit whenever they are in town. Last week, my five grandchildren (all under the age of 6) were in Laredo and my husband and I were on grandparent duty. They just love to go to the Imaginarium. They have been there so... More

Visited the imaginarium recently with 4 children from a teenager to a toddler. They all had fun. Although the place is more geared toward the little ones. The older children enjoyed the snakes and tarantulas display and the younger ones loved watching the balls go through pipes. Everyone loved making bubbles and racing cars. It is a good place to...

We took my four-year-old son to the Imaginarium and he had a great time. He especially liked the systems of pipes and pulleys that took plastic balls up to the ceiling and dropped them down over the kids below. The racing cars and the bubble table were also big attractors for him. We're definitely planning on visiting again, probably on... More

The museum is under new management and it shows. We miss the sand box in the summer and traveling exhibits from nationaly known science centers. Now it is much more of a children's museum without the science. Still there is a place for dramatic play and crafts to do. Best for kids 5 or 6 and under.
