Hours & Admission

Imagination Station is Temporarily Closed in response to COVID-19.

These are extraordinary times right now and after careful consideration, beginning Saturday, March 14, Imagination Station will be temporarily closed to the public until further notice.

The safety of our members, visitors and team members is our top priority. Our decision wasn’t an easy, but after careful consideration of Governor DeWine’s recent order to shelter in place, it is in the best interest of our members, visitors and team members to temporarily close.

Please visit imaginationstationtoledo.org/covid-19 to stay up-to-date on this developing situation.

Imagination Station is OPEN During Construction

The science center is in the midst of its first expansion! Opening in summer 2020, the KeyBank Discovery Theater will give visitors the opportunity to go on adventure - without leaving their seats.
