Impression 5 Science Center in Lansing

We love science museums and have been to many over the years to the sheer delight of our children when they were younger.  The best kinds are like the one in Lansing, hand-ons.  The Impression 5 Science Center is just outstanding.  Kids can walk through a gigantic heart and see just how this organ of our body works.  They can see the hearts of various animals for comparison purposes.  They learn with the experiments they can do right there. An oscilloscope will show you what the sound waves look like when you play the piano's various keys (it has a clear plastic front so you can watch the hammer action). The Lansing community has supported this museum 100% since its inception in 1972 and encourages kids to embrace the sciences and seek careers in them as well.  Awesome.
