Both my teen and 7 year old found lots of interesting things to do. Great family day. Neat water area and younger kids area for the under 6 set.

visited the Titanic exhibit there. wonderful experience. Imagination Station (formerly the Center of Science and Industry (COSI)) is a non-profit, hands-on science museum located on the riverfront in downtown Toledo, Ohio. The facility has over 300 exhibits for "children of all ages."

This was the first time I had visited the Imagination Station since it changed from COSI. I remember COSI being so fun and interactive, and Imagination Station seemed to be even better. I love all the different activities there are that you can learn from as well. I definitely had fun!

This was one of the best children's museums we have been too. There was plenty to do for a 6 and 8 year old for 3 hours (and some stuff is only for older kids/adults). And it's free for teachers! Highly recommend.

I have an almost 2 year old who is mesmerized by everything. This place was fun, but we quickly found that we had visited everything there was to do. Also there were several buckets surrounding the place collecting water that was leaking from the roof into the children's play area, I am not sure that is sanitary if the kids... More

Cosi suffered from lack of attention big time. . This is a fun get away for the family. . City property tax funded so I don't go as often as I used to. .. it's missing " the magic " of let's say the children's museum of Indianapolis but the fun factor still shines thru

This is a great place for kids! I don't have any, but was there with my friends and their little ones. I can't wait to take my nieces and nephew back -- so much to learn and do! Also very interesting special exhibits. Well worth the admission.

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.
