re-imagine your world

From the first mark on a cave wall to the first footsteps on the Moon, our greatest developments have begun with leaps of someone’s imagination.

The Institute of Imagination is creating a new kind of space for imaginations to grow. A world-class cultural destination in London that puts children at its heart. And a place for families to make, play, create and explore together.
