Imagination Station at CK Museum

Imagination Station

Create. Explore. Discover.

The Imagination Station is a hands-on interactive space found on the second floor of the CK Museum. 

Design a masterpiece on our giant Lite Brite, experiment with our magnet wall, and get loud as you play with our percussion wall! Cuddle up in one of our hanging hammock pods with a book from our tree library, try your hand at window art or, leave a colourful pattern on our weaving wall. With so many options, the Imagination Station has something fun for everyone (including adults)!

Every month the Imagination Station offers a new theme that allows us to nurture connections to Chatham-Kent's history in a modern way through weekly crafts, a Kids Club activity, and youth/adult ThursDIY workshops.
