Children's Museums and Theatres

If you have kids of any age and are thinking of Charlotte relocation, you'll certainly want to know about ImaginOn. A collaboration between Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and the Children's Theatre, the mission of ImaginOn brings stories to life through extraordinary experiences that challenge, inspire and excite young minds. For those unfamiliar due to a recent Charlotte relocation, it is located in the heart of downtown.

In addition to scheduled programs, you'll find friendly video game competitions or animation in Studio i, an impromptu performance or costumes to try on in the lobby, or a puppet show in Spangler Library.

The Spangler Library on the first floor offers books, media, and resources for children from birth through 5th grade. Special collections and resources for parents, teachers and caregivers are also an important part of ImaginOn’s mission. Staff members with expertise in early literacy, child development, and children’s and teen literature can help find just the right book, resource, or information.

Studio i, located on the second floor in the Loft, is a space where families and teens can bring stories to life through movies and music. Teens can express themselves in Studio i through animated and live action videos, music or a combination of the three. Studio i has the tools needed for each step in the production process, including: shooting, editing and sound mixing. Completed videos and songs can be burned to a disc, available for purchase at ImaginOn, or shared online. How cool is that?

Today, it continues to be one of the most technically imaginative and resourceful theatres in the country.
