|Once you are familiar with Impression 5’s features, consider the exhibits that you want to visit and the workshops that you want to include. Our Reservations Coordinator will be happy to provide ideas for your visit, answer questions, and accommodate your needs.
We are open six days a week in order to meet the needs of Science Center visitors. If possible, we’re happy to open early for your group. Our Reservations Coordinator can assist you in choosing a date and time for your visit that is most likely to result in a great experience.
