What is an Imaginarium? 

An Imaginarium is defined as a place

devoted to the imagination.

What is our Imaginarium?

Our Imaginarium is a place where imaginations are allowed to run free,
from makers to artists, from designers to creatives.

Located in the stunning setting of Fort Victoria and on the site of the old model railway, we are redefining what creativity, model making and interactive play really means for all kids young and old.

With completely new model layouts, interactive worlds and areas that really get you using your imagination we want to take you on a journey of discovery and creativity.

As part of that journey we will be including model making creative events, jewellery workshops, areas for electronics and construction, sound design and robotics. 2D and 3D will play a strong part in the new Imaginarium with systems and workshops in place to support and help us build and grow.

All of that takes time, so for now this will remain closed to the public, our shop however is open and we look forward to welcoming you.

The Imaginarium Emporium is a shop filled with wonderful treasures waiting for you to discover, items that will not only help drive imagination but will also bring out your inner creative skills.

We have bespoke artisan pieces from local artist  including Fort Victoria Seaglass jewellery, Resin art made with beautiful Fort Victoria, sand, Seaglass and shells and much more.

So whether you are looking for something for the kids, a truly unique souvenir for yourself or a lovely take-home gift for a loved-one, then look no futher than our Emporium, we are sure you will find something for everyone and every budget.

We will begin to hold artist ‘auditions’ in the new year, obviously space is limited so we will work on a first come first served basis.
