Imagination Station planned reopening delayed.

After careful consideration of the COVID-19 situation currently in Lucas County and the State of Ohio, we have made the difficult decision to delay the reopening of Imagination Station. This decision does not come easily, however, number one priority is the health and safety for our members, visitors and team, we feel this is the right action to take.

As a science center, we understand the science behind the spread of COVID-19 and want to be a part of slowing the spread.

As a result of cases on the rise in Lucas County and throughout the state of Ohio, Imagination Station will not reopen on November 20 as originally planned.

While our doors may still be temporarily closed, we will continue to work to address the needs of our community during this time through virtual programming and opportunities.

We want to thank all of you for your continued support during these challenging and unprecedented times.

When will you reopen?

  • The science center will continue to monitor the current situation in Lucas County and the State of Ohio and will reopen when we feel it is in the best interest of our members, visitors and Team

Why is Imagination Station changing plans to reopen?

  • At this time, Imagination Station will not be reopening on November 20, 2020 as planned. This decision was made for the health and safety of our guests and Team and was made in light of Lucas County's current Public Health Advisory Alert Level and the national COVID-19 situation. Please know this decision was extremely difficult for us and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of making this announcement on short notice. No new date for reopening Imagination Station has been set.
