Imagination Station isn't just for kids. Interactive stations and exhibits let you play right along with the kids as you all learn about science, the environment, aerodynamics, music, building things and lots more! Kids love it and admission is reasonable. Take your lunch and enjoy by the river or buy it in the cafeteria.

This place is nothing short of amazing! It is all hands on and great for young children to adults! Heck, I'd go back without the kids just to play around for me!!! There is so much to do and try. The only thing I can suggest would be for the gift shop. It seriously needs some tshirts for toddlers-adults! I... More

Perfect for ALL ages! Our family has a membership to COSI, which is our local science museum in Columbus, OH, so our admission to Imagination Station was free. We liked it very much! I was surprised that the crowd level on a busy Sat in July felt very manageable and I never felt rushed or crowded. Exhibits were wonderful: definitely... More

The Imagination Station is an excellent place to go with kids of all ages. From toddlers on up, there are plenty of unique and interesting things to do for all ages.

Remember going here when it was COSI, but finally made it here with our 10 yo son who was in a summer camp here. Looks like the cool things of COSI remain, but Imagination Station have added some neat new exhibits to keep up with 'cool things' that captivate the younger kids :) The workers seemed very friendly and anxious...

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.
