The Imperial Centre for the Arts & Sciences
The Imperial Centre is the Crown jewel of downtown Rocky Mount! This renovated warehouse is home to the Children's Museum, a Planetarium hosting various shows throughout the year, a gallery and theatre. Tucked in the front corner of the facility is a locally owned café, Milton & Miles, specializing in light breakfast and lunch fare with occasional dinner offerings - wine and beer available. The courtyard is used for summer concerts and outdoor family movie nights. In the winter, an ice skating rink is a popular destination.
