In the molecule of the title compound, C15H15N3O2, the planar benzimidazole ring system [maximum deviation = 0.023 (2) angstrom] is oriented at a dihedral angle of 74.21 (5)degrees with respect to the furan ring. In the crystal structure, intermolecular C-H center dot center dot center dot N interactions link the molecules into centrosymmetric R-2(2)(18) dimers. In addition, the structure is stabilized by pi-pi contacts between parallel imidazole rings [centroid-centroid distance = 3.726 (1) angstrom] and a weak C-H center dot center dot center dot pi interaction.
