The museum opened in 1997 as COSI. After tax levies failed in 2006 and 2007, COSI closed its doors to the public on the last day of 2007 due to lack of funding. In 2008, voters approved an operating levy to reopen the facility as The Toledo Science Center. This interim name was replaced by "Imagination Station," which opened on 10 October 2009.

The staff is very friendly. Everything about the imagination was great.The food at the Atomic Cafe is hot and fresh. There were no long lines anywhere. The simulation ride was awesome. Everything was clean and well maintained. It was a great experience. We will definitely b e returning in the very near future.
Really fun with lots to do. Parking was rough. Not sure about the neighborhood as there were tags in the parking structure.walking through the completely empty underground concourse was a bit off putting too. Once we got in though everything was great. The kids big and small had fun and there was non stop action. As a big kid, I had fun as much as everyone else. The science demonstrations were great to see. Lunch was alright and the prices were fairly reasonable.
