Imagination Station

Imagination Station

Our interactive programs are designed to promote student investigation and critical thinking. Led by a museum educator, programs include age-appropriate activities and encourage student participation. All museum programs meet learning standards outlined in North Carolina's Standard Course of Study.

Option 1 – Museum Visit
Groups that want to visit the museum and not participate in a program are requested to notify the Imagination Station prior to their arrival date. Groups will self-guide through the museum. General admission will apply for the group:
Adults, students, & seniors: $5.00
Children 3 years and under: Free

Option 2 – Museum Visit plus Student Programming
Explore ISSHM before or after your group participates in a scheduled program. Programs must be scheduled at least two weeks prior to the arrival date. Groups can choose different programs to customize their trip. General admission to the museum is included in the program price. Discounts apply for groups booking more than 1 program. Pricing and student capacity can be found under each program description in this guide.

Option 3 – Bring the museum to you with SHOW (Science and History On Wheels)
Field trips are not the only way to experience the Imagination Station. Let us come to you! No school bus required. Hubert-Vester Toyota of Wilson has generously provided the museum with a vehicle so science and history programs can come to your school, civic group, or family function. We will bring all materials needed to conduct exciting workshops, assembly programs, or discovery classes at your facility.  For locations greater than 75 miles from ISSHM, there must be a minimum purchase of $310 in programs.

SHOW programs range in price from $110 to $170, depending on the program and number of students served. If you are interested in multiple programs, a discount will be applied to any additional programs that you select. Please note that SHOW pricing will also include mileage at $0.58 per mile. Mileage will not be charged for SHOWs within Wilson County.

Most programs offered at the museum are also offered through SHOW; if there are program exceptions, it is noted in the program description. Due to set-up requirements, we ask that all programs be conducted in the same room. Please call the Education Assistant at (252) 291-5113 x225 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss SHOW programs and pricing.
