  • Had visited this museum 3 years ago, and the experience was very good. On this occasion had an exhibition of reptiles in the children's area with an additional cost of 5 dlls. The area for children had very few activities because of this activity. The laboratory area was fun as they performed an experiment for kids. He cost of the entrance to the Museum I seems very high (7dlls. adult and 5 dlls. children), think that is excessive addition to not have with any type of discount.

  • Very underwhelming! Half building is empty. 30$ for two adults and a 2year old. Will not recommend or come back. Don't be a sucker I was.
  • A nice place to go with the family. Nice group activities and outside play park. Facilities could be better taken care of.
  • I've been told by many friends that the IMAS is such a great museum. Well I finally took my family to what used to be family discount day. (Which no longer is a 'thing'). I was so disappointed. There was almost nothing to do or see and even though they have a nice outdoor playground, not even all of that is functioning. Also, upon arriving I told the woman at the front desk that we had never been there and didn't know what to expect. We weren't informed about any presentations or anything. So we missed getting into basically the only thing in the whole place. SO not worth the money. Very disappointing.
  • Not a lot in the museum to look at. However there is a very nice children's play area. For our family this was one of the nicest parts.
  • Excellent displays and wonderful staff. Great place for kids, the outdoor playground is one of the coolest I've ever seen
