About Imagination Station


The Nuts and Bolts

Located in downtown Toledo, Imagination Station, Toledo’s Science Center, is the region’s resource in interactive Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education. When you enter the doors of Imagination Station, you will experience hundreds of interactive exhibits, activities and demonstrations that teach vital science concepts. The science center is a hub of learning that provides the tools necessary to thrive in the 21st century and that shapes future scientists and innovators. We represent the idea that the sciences are more than theorems or formulas on a page, but are powerful concepts that can allow a wide-eyed child to ride a bike across a high wire and teach a family about where they get their energy.
