Imagination Station: Augusta

Mom Review: Imagination Station Augusta

Imagination Station in Augusta is one of the CSRA’s best-kept secrets. If you have small children and have yet to visit our local children’s museum, you should add it to your to-do list! The museum itself is not very big. There are three main rooms and an outside area that is attached to Hickman Park.

Brand New Playground and Tricycle Track!

Hickman Park has a brand new playground (fully gated), a swing set, and there is a really cool, painted riding track for bicycles. Imagination Station has trikes and bikes near their front doors for use on this track. We typically commute to Edventure in South Carolina, but Imagination Station is a great, smaller scale alternative. Each time I have taken my children, they stay entertained and don’t want to leave. The best target age for enjoyment would be 0-6 years old.



Imagination Station is non-profit and run by its members who volunteer their time monthly. The cost is $10 for a family of up to 3 children. There are member rates and also discounts for military families and students.

As you walk in the door, it’s hard to miss the awesome two story playhouse. My kids love the interactive activities you find inside such as a cooking area, dress up clothes, and fixer-upper projects. The huge playhouse is well made and our daughter thinks the second story is a cool attic. In the same entrance room, they have various tables set up to coordinate with the overall theme of the museum.

When we visited, there was a table with underwater creatures, a train/car table, a gear wall, and other tinker activities. In the corner of the same room, there is a gated area that is perfect for infants. The Sensorimotor Corner has plenty of activities for infants such as board books, soft blocks, a sensory wall, cushioned slides, and plenty of baby toys to keep your tiniest one engaged.


The room to your left is a completely stocked Art Studio. Your child will be able to create a one of a kind masterpiece in no time. The large table is set up with individual buckets filled with art supplies for your child’s taking. Imaginations can run wild as it is not limited to any particular medium. When we were there, my daughter was able to draw a mermaid and surround her picture with sea shells she glued on. Our son made a sweet little lion out of foam shapes. If you want, you can even leave your child’s work of art on display for the gallery wall!

The other side of the museum is a pre-literacy room. This room encourages imaginative play. There is a large performance stage where your child can dress up in costumes, play with puppets, and various props. The room is also filled with books, puzzles, games, storyboards, and a quiet corner for reading.

Overall, I would highly recommend Imagination Station to any family with small children. Everything was clean and organized the day we visited, and the staff was friendly when greeted. If you visit or have visited Imagination Station with your family, let us know what you think!
