Founded by Ceclilia Martines Clafin the Imaginarium was created when she noticed that there was a lack of a place for children to be themselves in the museum. The town museum was filled with exhibits behind glass and not only did children get nothing from the exhibits but also they weren’t even allowed to touch them! The tides had turned and in 1991 the Laredo Children’s Museum opened its doors. The Laredo Community College hosted the museum in the beginnings and when the museum got enough funding to get its own place it changed its name to the Imaginarium of South Texas. Giving children an opportunity to learn with learn own hands, test the boundaries of science, and in general just do really cool stuff. Whether the kids are trying to figure out the magnetic wonder walls, creating a masterpiece in the shadow rooms, exploring the toddler room, in the Mercado, or creating their own dream in the dream studio your child will have a blast. Come to a place where imagination and creation meet!
