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

This is an excellent place to take the kids to pique their interest in science. It has so many different areas to explore and also a fantastic staff. There are multiple demonstrations a day that are out-of-this-world, an imax theater and a simulation "ride". A great day for all ages!

The small kid section was fun, it was very nice, there was also a breastfeeding room as well. The rest was a hit or miss. Some of the things were not working so it was a little bit of a bummer. It was great right when it opened there weren't a lot of people but then the school groups started... More

It has been forever since we went to what was then COSI. So we visited the Imagination Station just to see what it was like. There was lots to do and very entertaining. The place was clean and well kept up. We ate in the restaurant and the food is very good. There didn't seem to be a lot of... More

Visited the Imagination Station to take the kids to the dinosaur exhibit, as always, this place is a great way to spend the day, and get the kids' minds working, but the dinosaur exhibit....a little disappointing for the price. Although the exhibit itself was put together nicely, I expected a LOT more for the added entry fee. The advertising for... More

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.

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!
