  • Undergo a health screening upon your arrival

  • Wear a mask for the duration of your visit (ages 3+)

  • 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.
