Loved the place. Lots of activities, friendly staff and prices were good. Went with my husband and loved checking out all the exhibits.

The dino exhibit was nothing new and very short. Not worth the extra money on top of the admission price. The rest was OK but all pretty common exhibits and displays for a science center type attraction. Going once was fine but probably wont go back anytime soon.

Imagination Station(IS) is a fantastic resource for Toledoians. This is a non-profit organization with a focus on learning and science activities. They often have special venues with a creative and fascinating idea and it's usually hands on. They have high wire bike riding, various science stations where not only your kids will learn plenty but the parents will learn a... More

There are three must-see locales for families visiting Toledo -- (1) the Toledo Zoo; (2) the Toledo Museum of Art; and (3) the Imagination Station. I mention all three because the most expensive is the Imagination Station. However, when you consider entrance to the Toledo Zoo is only $7.50 for adults in the late fall and winter (half price) and... More

I was in town, staying in the hotel connected to Imagination Station, and I got free admission as a teacher. So I figured it was worth a shot. It was well worth it! People complain that it is small. But honestly it's bigger than Cleveland's Great Lakes Science Center. It's large enough to make a trip, probably would take the... More

This is one of the most fun and educational places you can take your childen. To be honest, it's fun for all ages. You can't beat making science fun by hands-on learning. Don't miss this!

My husband and I went to see the Titanic display yesterday. We are senior citizens and did not realize that you have to pay general admission as well as the admission for the Discovery Center. It would have cost us nearly $40 for admission. We declined and went to the Zoo instead. I am sorry it is so expensive. We... More

We went to go see the Titanic Exhibit before it ends on 9/21. Didn't realize that you had to pay general admission AND the fee to see the Titanic. So, for us two adults, it was nearly $40.00. We had to wait a really long time to pay to get in, since the two reps at the admission desk were... More

Has a lot of great hands on exhibits. Not to big for a kid to start to get bored at and even us parents had a great time. Unlike the Michigan science center in Detroit all the exhibits were working. We really enjoyed our time spent there.

What a gem of a science center Toledo has!!! Having been to many, this was most likely our favorite. So much interesting stuff to do; and different than the "standard fare" science centers typically have. Where else can you watch your husband ride a bike across a tightrope 2 stories in the air?! Our outing consisted of 2 children (6... More
