The Impression 5 Science Center is very interactive and educational for kids of both all ages and adults. Learn by doing and play is great for toddlers! Affordable prices, and partnerships with similar centers nationwide and globally.

This is by far the best children's hands on place in Michigan! We loved exploring every station & the kids didn't want to leave. It's in a great location. However parking can be slim on special event days.

Hands on children's museum. I enjoyed it thoroughly and had no kids with me. All science and made for exploring. Challenging for kids and adults. Made a great get together for a work group for some fun and camaraderie

Great place for kids to explore many hands on exhibits. All ages can learn from the exhibits or just have fun running from place to place.

each section has so much for young ones to do. they can play in the water, or check out the electricity center and even a place they have bubbles. I absolutely believe every child should visit this place for fun and learning all in one. great for those who home school and looking for small field trips!

Have taken our children and plan on taking grandchildren. Even the adults have fun here. The hardest part is to get everyone to leave. Could stay all day. Not only fun but educational

The kids really loved this museum. They especially loved the force and motion challenge (there was an extra charge for this.) There was something inside that every child there found interesting and fun.

The hardest part of taking children to Impression Five is getting them to leave! The staff does a great job on engaging them and teaching the impacts of science.

I love the music room and toddler area. I do wish they had more activities for toddlers other than the one room. I've also noticed some of the activities don't work.
