Have you ever taken 5 children, including one with autism, to a museum? I have. Imagine Planet was founded to give families in Jackson, MI a safe and welcoming place to explore science through animals and hands-on activities. Our free admission means you can try us out and not have committed large sums of admission fees only to have a meltdown occur. There is fun for all ages here at Imagine Planet!
