Imagination Workshop

Make Something Awesome


Posted by Kidspace Children's Museum on Sunday, September 6, 2015

The Imagination Workshop is a space for children ages 4 and up to make, create and discover. In the Imagination Workshop kids can build and create and repurpose with real tools and a wide array of materials. Come in on Technology Tuesday, our one day a week devoted to electronics and technology, to work with circuits, electronics and robotics.  Whether it’s a toy or radio, electronic or mechanical device, new object or old, the Imagination Workshop will present children with limitless opportunities to discover the inner workings of everyday objects, as well as the principles that make them work.

If you can imagine it, you can build it!


Imagination Workshop opens 30 minutes after Kidspace opens and closes 1 hour before regular museum closing time. Hours are subject to change to provide special programming during operating hours.
