  • So we went down to Toledo to see what was there and happened to come across this place. This is our 2nd or third `Imagination Station' (Science Centre) we've been at in American cities. For the most p...  more »

  • Fun for the whole family! There is something for everybody to enjoy, explore, learn, WE LOVE this place! Grandma grandpa family friends from all over the country have come to visit and the Imagination station is our #1 must SEE! Our membership includes up to 4 guests not to mention free parking, discounts on food, learning programs and I believe we only paid $100 for the year!
  • My son and I absolutely love Imagination Station it is seriously one of the coolest places ever. We got to meet Star Wars characters and all of the interesting exhibits to look at I would definitely recommend this to anyone even adults. People with kids definitely should take them to experience such a fun time. My son and I will definitely be returning soon
  • Nice museum for kids. It's not as big as the one in Detroit but still nice to go to. Employees were all really nice and helpful. The food court had a nice variety of foods and prices weren't bad either. Kids all had really nice time.
  • Excellent place to take the kids in the winter, although there are outdoor science activities in the warmer months. A membership is a great value! Staff is generally very friendly and helpful. Facility is clean and cared for. Street parking can be a challenge, but there is parking across Summit in the Vistula garage that is usually $3-$5 per visit. There are also membership options that include free parking.
  • This is truly a fascinating place for young children up to adults! We spent hours there, and still didn't get through all of the interesting exhibits and activities. This museum has a lot of exhibits, as well as games and science demonstrations. Not only do they teach science, bit they also have a section on healthy eating and exercise, with activities there to help kids move and have fun at the same time! I was disappointed to see the area teaching yoga, though, as that has dark spiritual associations. As mentioned in the Q&A section, you can bring a sack lunch, but there is no area provided in the museum at which to eat it. If you walk just a little ways down a connected hallway, there is a public area which is very nice. The bathroom smelled bad, but otherwise was nice. If you plan to visit more than once (and especially if you come with a large group), their membership options are cost-effective. Overall, a fun, educational place to spend all day!
