This place is more for the under 10 years old family. I took some 13 year olds and they quickly went through the museum and although they tried everything that was age appropriate, they were quickly done.

I have children ages 2, 5, and 7. We were in Sandusky but happened upon a rainy, rainy day. So, we drove to Toledo. This was the best decision ever. We basically spent the whole day at the Imagination Station. Very kid friendly and interesting for adults. The layout is excellent. We went to a combustion science show which we... More

I had been to Imagination Station with 2 very little kids. Not so fun. However, I recently took my brother's grandchildren, 7 and 11, expecting them to be bored during a very short visit. We were there for 6 hours. They LOVED it there. I enjoyed being able to actually being able to look at things myself. I was pleasantly... More

Our 5 grandchildren (ages 6 to 14 months) REALLY has a great time here. We had a great time watching them. The small kids room has many things for the kids to try and explore. The 14 month was in love with a display where a small ball floats in air. She got so excited when she caught a ball... More

Imagination Station is a great place to make learning fun for kids. It's also a great place for adults to check out some pretty cool displays of science and other fun things. I'm not sure if we just went on an unlucky day, but there were at least 3 schools of elementary students there, which made it pretty crowded and... More

I love taking the GKids to Imagination Station (we still call it COSI.) It is always a good time except when they schedule too many school class trips at the same time. Even my 5yr old GrandD said.."Pa, look at all the school buses." Most of the time the crowds are reasonable, but it still was a good time.

plenty of nearby parking. many activities inside, visited during the recent guitar exhibit. I personally enjoyed the mini theater with animated figures sponsored by The Andersons. The cafe was priced in the mid-range and had a nice view of the river.

Imagination Station in Toledo is a good half day of fun maybe a little longer with lunch. There are several parking lots within a couple of blocks of IS. This attraction is geared more for ages 10 and younger. Your youngest kids under 6 will probably have the most fun in a small kids area but it very busy. There... More
