I took my 9 year old son here and he had a blast. Don't let the exterior fool you. This place is big and has a lot to offer. We stayed for 4 hours and didn't do everything. My only critique would be that some of the exhibits weren't working properly.

The center is a neat little place to spend a few hours learning science in a hands on environment. My kids especially love the bubble area where they tried to wrap themselves in a bubble. It's reasonably priced so a large family can enjoy it without breaking the bank.

Great fun for kids and adults. Lots of hands on experiments that are hidden learning. Not just kids learn a lot but adults too.

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.
