In the structure of title compound, 2(C3H5N2^+^) C~6~H~8~O~8~^2-^ . 2H~2~O the galactarate dianions have crystallographic inversion symmetry and together with the water molecules of solvation form hydrogen-bonded sheet substructures which extend along the (110) planes in the unit cell. The imidazolium cations link these sheets peripherally down c through carboxyl O...H-N,N'---H...O(hydroxyl) bridges, giving a three-dimensional framework structure.
