How do I summarize Impressions 5, well to start it's amazing place for kids and family to learn with fun. Fun for all from a young age to adult you can learn about just about anything and have a ton of fun while doing it.

This is a great place to take kids of many ages. My favorite parts are the baby's room, where the water play is at. A new water area is in the works and I can't wait! Being a nanny, I like to take my little charge here for a few hours of play. I try and pick days where school... More

Looking for a great way to spend a couple hours with your kids? Here it is. Lots of fun with science, interactive as well. The leadership of the museum has done a remarkable job with the renovations and upgrades.

When we arrived, we noticed that many of the children there... More

This is an adventure for children up to age 12 and adults. Interaction is a must. So, bring a child, or two or three and go for it!

I have been here several times and it is perfect for little kids. Not over priced and not too large. An afternoon would be perfect and it is also by several other museums.
