Best place for kids to experience science - hands on! They've thought of everything and made it all so much fun! There's even really neat bathrooms. Can't say enough about this attraction. Go experience it for yourself; fun for kids and adults alike!

Took my two grandsons here, they are two and four and two and ahalf hours went by in no time. They were engaged the whole time and the hands on experience is asome.

Kids absolutely love the interactive, hands on displays at Impression 5 museum. Plan on spending three or four hours here.

The museum was lots of fun, but geared mostly for kids in grade school. Lots of hands on exhibits and things for kids to do. Trains downstairs are very cool to see. The entire place needs some touch up and coats of paint, but it makes for a nice couple of hours.

We visited this museum today after my first graders school was cancelled due to a power outage. We are members at the Imagination Station in Toledo. And while this Imagination Station is our favorite, this place DEFINATELY beats out the Hands On Museum in Ann Arbor. Volunteers were friendly and my 3 boys absulutely loved the exhibits. In fact, I'd... More

This science center was wonderful. There were a lot of stuff for the the kids to touch and play with. My husband and I also got into it and were playing. It is a small place but that was a good thing. I could let my kids go from one station to another without me close by. I will definitely... More

Tucked in an old brick building downtown, right along the river, Impression 5 has been a childhood favorite for decades. I remember visiting as a child more than 25 years ago, and it's better than ever. Plenty to see, with the majority of the exhibits being hands-on. Bubble room, water room, Michigan flora and fauna room, light room, music room,... More
