For more than 20 years, Imagine That!!! has offered illuminating exhibits and activities that engage preschool and young school-aged brains with safe, educational fun. Unlike at the Museum of Fine China, children are encouraged to touch, discover, and explore more than 50 unique exhibits. The music room molds future Mozarts, Bachs, and Victor Borges with their first revelatory exposure to cymbals, castanets, and triangles. Meanwhile in the doctor’s office, colorful charts teach anatomy, going up a ramp in a wheelchair raises awareness about disability, and a breakdancing skeleton explains proper use of a stethoscope.
Imagine That!!!’s puppet theater, grocery store, pet vet center, Victorian house, and pirate ship offer additional settings to let imaginations roam free. A one-level, no-stairs facility, the museum is accessible to children of all sizes and needs, and the bright, open area allows parents or group leaders to keep track of children easily, resulting in a lost-kids bin that is usually empty.
The constant tug-of-war between education and fun finds middle ground inside this Central Jersey children’s museum, as entertaining exhibits and engaging staff members embed knowledge in each young visitor. Young guests can play veterinarian at the Pet Vet Center, read the news and see themselves on television at the TV News Room, or shed light on the complexities of the human body inside a replica doctor’s office outfitted with realistic equipment.
A motorcycle, retired fire engine, and a grounded airplane shows visitors the wonders of mechanized travel in the Varoom!!! Vehicle Showroom, which leads to an enchanted castle outfitted with a wooden drawbridge, a faux moat, and a new level 3 train exhibit. Party rooms manned by helpful staffers merge learning and celebration, and the onsite gift shop coaxes homebound brain building with a selection of scientific toys.
