Welcome back!

We’re thrilled to announce that we will be reopening Impression 5 Science Center to the public starting Thursday, September 24th. Our top priority is the safety of our guests and staff, so we have implemented enhanced disinfecting measures and limited capacity, timed entry ticketing 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.


Safety Procedures


Before visiting, please begin monitoring your household for any symptoms and review our safety guidelines and procedures here. Please note that in visiting Impression 5 Science Center, you are agreeing to:

  • Undergo a health screening upon your arrival

  • Wear a mask for the duration of your visit

  • Practice social distancing

  • Be symptom-free at the time of visit

Anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 will not be permitted into the science center.


As one of many increased safety procedures, we have increased ventilation and air filtration throughout Impression 5. As we approach changing weather, please be prepared for cooler temperature in the building. We recommend dressing in layers. 


Reserve a Time Slot (Only 1 Time Slot Needed Per Family)


Only one time slot is needed for your family visit. When you select a time, you are selecting a 20-minute window during which we ask you to arrive and check in at Guest Services. After that, feel free to stay and play as long as you'd like! 


Up to 10 people are permitted per time slot reserved and regular admission applies. Members, please refer to your membership type for the number of members and guests allowed on your membership.
By reserving a time slot, all visitors agree to a health screening including temperature check, to wear a mask during the duration of your visit, social distance as a group, and be symptom-free at the time of visit.
After selecting your time, please continue to your cart to "check-out". Here you will fill out your name and contact information, and you will receive an e-ticket via email and acknowledgement email. Please review both carefully. There will be no online cost associated, as admission will be paid on-site.


If you have questions about your reservation, or need to cancel or reschedule your time slot, please contact our Reservations Coordinator at (517) 485-8116 ext. 132 or reservations@impression5.org.
