Happy birthday, IMAG!
July 25, 2017
Kids of all ages are invited to a birthday party! The first 250 who qualify as children by virtue of their chronological age will receive a present. For the rest of us, the guest of honor is a gift in and of itself.
IMAG History & Science Center is celebrating its facility’s 22nd birthday on Saturday, August 12 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and you’re invited! Click here to find out all the details.
We hope to see you there to enjoy food trucks, interactive STEM and history stations, buy-one-get-one admissions, a gift for the first 250 children, a preview of a one-of-a-kind virtual reality (VR) exhibit, and special giveaways. IMAG’s open regular hours that day, too.
The Imaginarium Science Center, with its iconic water tower, has been a steady presence in Fort Myers for more than two decades now. Earlier this year, it merged with the Southwest Florida Museum of History to create IMAG, and an exciting blend of exhibits and hands-on activities that combine history focused on Southwest Florida with science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The birthday party on August 12 will gives guests the opportunity to preview a new, highly immersive VR experience – Virtual Fort Myers: The Past Meets the Present. Scheduled to fully open on August 19, this experience is the ultimate STEM and history combination and is indicative of the innovative approach IMAG is taking to implement its new mission.
Our Jon Romine is past president of the Imaginarium Group. He said, “Science and history are so intertwined in Southwest Florida that they can’t be separated. The two museums can tell a much greater story when they tell it together.”
We at EnSite think it’s only fitting that the community should come together to celebrate that legacy of storytelling, because it belongs to all of us. So, let’s party!
