LANSING, Mich. – Impression 5 Science Center is moving forward with exciting plans to build two new entrances to create barrier-free access throughout the building. The new riverside and north-side entrances will allow guests to access Guest Services on the first floor.
This first-floor construction will temporarily force the Science Center to close for a three-week period early this fall: September 1 through September 22. It’s during that time we’ll completely reconstruct the existing stairway, elevator ramp, and build a new riverside entrance that will allow a great deal of natural light into the main floor lobby space. The new north-side entrance is scheduled for later this fall.
Impression 5’s projected date to reopen with normal hours and operations is Tuesday, September 23. Additional construction will continue throughout the fall with several anticipated guest experience enhancements, but it will have a limited impact on guests.
