Children's Museum

Imagination Place is designed primarily for children ages 2 through 10. The kids will delight in exploring KidsTown USA, our permanent exhibit, where everything is child-sized. Children can explore the medical clinic, grocery store, construction pit and visit Grandma's House. Upstairs, you can visit the train station and board the Imagination Express, visit the farm, and sail on a sunken pirate ship.
