Future scientists and engineers (and their families) come to the IMAG History & Science Center to explore topics, such as earth and space science, Florida history, technology, marine animals, and more through interactive exhibits. The center also offers live animal encounters with its touch tanks and aquarium.  

Recent visitors were pleased with the center and its hands-on exhibits, and said it was a great indoor activity when the weather won't cooperate. Others felt the admission price was too high, citing old exhibit facilities. Other reviewers warn this activity is best suited for children 12 and younger.

You'll find the IMAG History & Science Center within the downtown vicinity, less than 2 miles east of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission costs $14 for adults and $10 for children 12 and younger.
