The IMAG announces new hours for the History & Science Center | News, Sports, Jobs
Starting this month, the IMAG History and Science Center has new opening times. The museum is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm (closed on Tuesdays) and Sunday from 12pm to 5pm. IMAG is a family-friendly destination with interactive exhibits, aquariums, hands-on activities, history exhibits and more to spark the imagination in all of us.
IMAG attractions include Science on a Sphere, an interactive exhibit that illustrates the science of our planet; Google Earth Wall, which allows people to virtually scale the highest mountains in the world, dive into the deepest gorges, visit exciting cities, meet exotic animals and much more; and Shaping SWFL Watersheds, an interactive augmented reality sandbox that generates live topographic maps and real-time fluid dynamics. Guests can touch and feed a stingray in the Sea-to-See Touch Tanks and visit the Living Lab to see turtles, tortoises, snakes, frogs and other reptiles. In addition, guests can watch 3D movies in our theater and see a replica USS Mohawk in our 3,200 gallon aquarium, which houses multiple species of tropical fish and was built by Animal Planet’s “fueled” tv show. While the IMAG history exhibits range from the Ice Age to the early 1800s in Fort Myers, the IMAG Weather Experience includes a hurricane simulator and exhibit, Touch-a-Cloud and the IMAG Weather TV Studio. On the museum grounds, guests can also feed fish in the Fisheye Lagoon, explore the Lake Okeechobee Aquarium, and participate in the Caloosahatchee Fossil Hunt, which offers guests a unique experience to look for different types of fossils.
The IMAG is open Sunday through Saturday but closed Tuesday and is located at 2000 Cranford Avenue in Fort Myers. For more information, call 239-243-0043 or visit www.theIMAG.org.
