Great place to take granchildren!

We have taken our grandchildren to Impression Five and had as much fun as they did. Definitely a great activity for all ages.

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.

A totally "hands-on" experience for you and your family. Your children will simply love a visit to this location. I promise you a wonderful day with the kids here. Accessible via the boardwalk also.

There is a dedicated space for infants and pre-school children. The senior citizens seemed to enjoy trying out the Throwing Things area. I'm looking forward to seeing the new... More

Brought our grandson here and he loved the airplane flying section, the catapults, bubble blowing and the car racing. Great place for him to grow into.

Do you want to learn about science? Do you like hands on learning. If your answer to these questions is "Yes", then a visit to Impression 5 is in order. Inside a repurposed factory/warehouse are exhibits and activities aimed at both providing answers and provoking more questions. Although seemingly geared toward those in middle school and younger, older teens and... More

I took my grandkids this summer and they had a blast. They loved playing grocery store, doing the bubble experiment and making slimp.
