The IMAG History and Science Center


IMAG offers fun for all ages to discover the wonders of science and history. On the Eastern edge of the historic down town Fort Myers River District, the IMAG is housed in a repurposed water treatment plant, providing a large, open environment to explore over 60 hands-on exhibits. Feed a stingray in the SEA-to-SEE touch tanks, learn about and touch animals in the LIVE Animal Encounter shows, and visit the Living Lab to see turtles, snakes, frogs, a bearded dragon, and much more! Gaze at the Florida native, and exotic fish in the 3,200-gallon aquarium built by Animal Planet�s Tanked, with a replica of the USS Mohawk artificial reef. Go on a virtual dive to that same reef with the IMAG App! History exhibits span from the Ice Age to the early 1900s and guests can even visit the original fort of Fort Myers in a one-of-a-kind Virtual Reality experience. Younger visitors will enjoy the Mini Museum�s early childhood area. Go upstairs to touch a cloud, become a TV weather forecaster and learn about nanotechnology. Outside, explore the river in the Caloosahatchee Experience, stroll through the Backyard Nature exhibits, and feed fish in the Fisheye Lagoon.
