Where are we going today?

You know a museum was built just for kids when you have the word IMAGINATION in the name!

Imagination Station in Indiana is dedicated to bring the fun of science and technology to children and families. They wanted to create a place filled with hands-on learning experiences in engineering, technology, and science...and they have! 

They have a number of exhibits that will allow kids to find the fun in subjects they may not think could be!

Do you know what nanotechnology is? Well, Imagination Station is the place to find out! Kids can learn all about the wonders of magnetic fields, and even learn what it's like to take part in a dinosaur dig as an archaeologist, looking for that once in a lifetime find!

They can explore science with microscopes, and see how amazing everyday objects look up close, and even look through amazing kaleidoscopes.

Imagination Station also has an extensive display of geological history and ornithology (see all these new words you can learn too!)

Want to hear something very cool? The museum might even operate a Mars Rover simulation! How cool is that!

With summer camps and new exhibits just like the fun Salamander Tale, kids will come away with a new outlook on science and technology!

Let's go use our imagination!

    I almost didn't go but when I found out how low the price was compared to COSI I decided to give it a try. I took my girlfriend and my 4 year old girl. We had a blast there was something for all of us to do! The extra attractions were only a buck and there was no cost to park near by. Tickets are only $10 and $8 for my child. This is a great winter time activity with lots to do! There is enough to keep you busy for 4 to 5 hours. The staff went out of there way to make our time the best it could be you can tell when people love there job and these...Read More

    I am almost 18 years old and I went with my 19 year old boyfriend just for a new experience, and let me tell you it was a blast. Here are a few tips, you will have to park on the street or in the parking garage across the street. The parking garage was a little creepy for my taste. Once you get into the building the fun never ends. There were people of all ages. It kept us entertained for a while. There is SO much to do for ALL ages! If you are on the fence about going, you need to go. One thing I advise is not to plan on eating at the Atomic Cafe....Read More

Only own side other than a main attraction the rest hasn't changed much from when it was Cosi.

The food isn't too good, but there is a Jimmy Johns and a Subway really close buy so that is where we ate! :)
