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.

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.

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.
