Fun for kids and adults.
Nov 2020
This is fun for kids and adults! I went when the Titanic exhibit was there, and went back a few times after! It can get overwhelming when large groups of kids are there, so if you are going with another adult or for a date day idea, I suggest not going on a weekend.

Would Visit Again
Mar 2020 • Family
What a fun place to visit! We spent the weekend in Toledo and came here on a Sunday morning. Spent two hours in the exhibits and the kids just had a blast. Our favorite part was Mind Maze in the basement level. There is a small cafe but we didn’t eat there, and a gift shop with a bunch of science related items at the entrance. Park in the lot across and down the street and walk through the underground walkway.

A great afternoon for all
Nov 2019 • Family
I met a friend with a 4 year old boy there with my 5 year old son. It was a great spot to meet for us and gave the kiddos a chance to burn energy. It was also a fun time for us adults! We got to try some of the bigger things, like the balance bike. The giant piano was also a hit! I highly recommend planning to spend a few hours here, it makes for a great afternoon activity!

Journey Into the Future!
Jul 2019
The Imagination Station in Toledo, Ohio is a very nice place to go. It is perfect for school aged children from toddlers all the way to high school. There are lots of activities for the children and adults to interact with.

The attractions and displays are kept in good working order which is important in a place like this. The staff was engaged and warm. They could have used a few more greeters at the entryway but in general it was okay. We went with a school group and Imagination Station provided instructions, parking information and other materials prior to arrival to help make the school event go along well.

There is one play area set aside for very young children and that was a nice touch. They have ongoing crafting and experiment activities taking place. The work area is clean and the activities are fun and interesting. The instructors/leaders/teachers in this area are skilled and interested.

They could probably use a little more help with keeping some of the play spaces cleared up but it wasn't really a problem.

So much fun and what a lot to learn!

Interesting
Jul 2019 • Family
Enjoyed the visit with a grandchild. Seen through their eyes it was interesting. Everything seemed a little worn but I can imagine how difficult it is to keep everything clean and in repair with that many children coming through.

Boring if You are Not Traveling with Children.
Jun 2019
I hate to say it, since so many families with children seemed to be having so much fun, but this vast science museum was downright boring to this 72 year old traveling solo without children. Even when I stumbled upon something that I might find of interest, some seven year old came running in front of me to take over the exhibit. This place is not one for "children of all ages." There were two remarkable exceptions: 1) a bicycle that you pedaled across a wire 40 or so feet above the main exhibit area that was initially frightening, but was truly easy and lots of fun for this septuagenarian. Thrilling and a delight! And 2) a contraption where you got harnessed in and allowed you to jump high into the air as you pushed down on it. After a short while, however, my COPD quickly set in, and it took a full 10 minutes to catch my breath. Exhilarating and literally breath-taking. However, outside these two exhibits, the whole museum was profoundly boring and indeed lonely. Don't go there alone!

Loved it for our kids!
Jun 2019 • Family
We have a 2 year old and 10 month old. We chose Imagination Station over the Toledo Zoo because it was raining. We had a great time. Our 2 year old absolutely loved it and he was running all over the place. The baby area was very cute and our 10 month old had fun too! Highly recommend!

Fun everytime
Jun 2019 • Family
We go maybe once month and we always have fun and find something new. The only downside is parking, there isnt any on site so you have to park in a nearby parking garage. Call before you go, one of them has a connected tunnel right to it so you dont have to walk outside. I just can't remember the name of it, you can also get it validated so it saves you a few dollars.
