It is such a fun place to bring kids or just to go by yourself they have different sections and sometimes they will do a section that is only there for a limited amount of time. They also have a toddler /baby area. Overall it is a very fun experience. they also have great attractions for teens.

We drove here on a blustery November day. The facility was clean and organized. The exhibits were very interesting. The staff members were very good with the kids and knew the education behind the exhibits.

We recently visited the imagination station with our daughter (4) and son (16 months). It being October and a school day meant that we had it almost to ourselves. We particularly loved the under 5s area.

My family visits a lot of science museums since science is kind of our thing. This was one of the nicer ones that we've been too behind Chicago and Philadelphia. We were amazed at how clean it was and that all of the attractions were functioning. Often, at least some of the hands-on items are broken with someone being too... More

Imagination Station is a great place to visit with young families. Under age 6 it might be a little over their head over age 10 they might feel a little bored. Our family loves this Toledo job. Only reason for not giving it 5 stars is it might be for a facelift.

Imagination Station is always changing to keep things new and exciting. Our grandkids love it and learn for it. One of the top things they like to do. Great location right on the Maumee River. Do have yearly memberships too. Close to parking but it's not right on site so if you can't walk a block or two just drop... More

Hours of enjoyment for our 2 y.o granddaughter, her parents, aunt, and uncle. Not sure who had the most fun, the little kid or the big kids. Something for everyone. Demonstration was awesome and included audience participation. Had special areas of play/exploring for the younger kids (enclosed by a latched a gate), so you don't have to chase and worry... More
