Celebrating 10 years with a new logo & mission!

As we celebrate our 10 year anniversary this year, we have embarked on a massive renovation to refresh & add new and exciting additions to the museum to make it an even more vibrant learning environment. We are excited to be moving into the next decade with a new mission: The Imagine Nation Museum Early Learning Center is committed to the development of life-long learners.  Within an environment that inspires young children and families to imagine and investigate, our community supports the development of critical thinking, curiosity, creativity, confidence, and citizenship.
