Welcome Back!

The Impression 5 team is thrilled to welcome you back as we reopen our doors to visitors. Reservations are no longer required as of April 2021. Our top priority is the safety of our guests and staff, so we have implemented enhanced disinfecting measures and limited building capacity to let your family safely and freely explore your science center. Read on for more information about our safety procedures and how to plan your next visit.


Open Hours



9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.




Limited Capacity


Since our reopening, we have been using this time of limited capacity to learn about what works best for families visiting the science center, as well as what creates the safest experience for our guests and staff. Thank you for your patience as we prototyped different ticketing and reservation processes.  


Based on feedback from members and guests, we are no longer requiring a reservation to visit Impression 5.  We will still enforce a building capacity each day, but we hope that this change will allow more members and guests the opportunity to visit their science center.  We value your support and we are thankful to our members who have stayed the course with us during this last year of unprecedented closures and openings.  We look forward to seeing you at Impression 5.  


What to Expect When You Arrive at Impression 5


Before you begin exploring the science center, here's what to expect:

  • If capacity allows, enter for a visit and check in at our admissions desk

  • If Impression 5 is at capacity at the time of arrival, guests will be given a choice to join our virtual line. We hope that this will allow more members and guests to visit on their chosen day.

For questions, please contact our admissions desk at (517) 485-8116 ext. 138.
