The Imaginarium Science Center, a science museum, features more than 60 exhibits about the environment, physics, anatomy, weather and other topics. Attractions include aquariums displaying marine life, a touch pool, a living reef tank, an outdoor lagoon, a 3-D theater, a butterfly garden, a citrus grove and interactive areas for preschoolers.

There are nature exhibits, science experiments, a 3-D theater, games, a freshwater lagoon, an old prop-plane hanging from the ceiling. The main building is pale indigo with purple doors and canary yellow trim, like a pastel wing of the Smithsonian Institution.

Inside, most of the floors are tile, the walls painted cinderblock. Each laugh, scream, ooh and aah bounces off the hard surfaces, creating an echoing symphony that captures the essence of childhood: vocal freedom fueled by unbridled curiosity.

Cost of admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors 55 and older, $8 students with ID, free for children 2 and younger. From Bonita Springs and Naples, take Interstate 75 north to Martin Luther King Boulevard. Turn left on MLK, and left again on Cranford. Information: 337-3332
