Play Packs – These all-in-one activity kits cover a specific topic and encourage creativity, critical thinking, and exploration. Our first kit includes 4 activities related to space, but we’ll have additional kits coming out the rest of the year, with themes related to STEM, art, and more. https://theicm.org/playpacks/
MyICM Facility Rentals – Small groups can rent our space and explore our exhibits in a more private setting. Groups are limited to 25 individuals (less than 3% our normal capacity) and our staff ensure everyone is following our updated procedures designed to protect everyone in our space. Learn more here.
Super Hero Nights – We are looking to bring this event back in September. If you have any feedback or ideas on how to best serve families with children with special needs during this time, please let me know and I’ll pass it along to the team!
