The IMAG, its staff, and board of directors are grateful for all who help contribute to the safety, health, and wellbeing of our families, friends, and communities in SWFL. As way of showing their appreciation, the IMAG is offering free admission to active-duty military and their families as well as first responders and healthcare workers and their families limited to Lee County, Collier County, and Charlotte County police, fire, rescue, doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers. Free admission will be available from Saturday, May 23 to Monday, Memorial Day, May 25 and from Friday, May, 29 to Monday, June 1 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. In accordance with CDC recommendations, the number of guests visiting the IMAG are limited. As such, active-duty military, first responders, healthcare workers, and their families must obtain tickets in advance online at and present valid identification upon arrival.

“We are thankful for our active-duty military, first responders, and healthcare professionals,” said Matt Johnson, Executive Director, the IMAG History & Science Center. “By providing free admission to the IMAG, we are hoping this not only shows our appreciation but, more importantly, provides a time when they can get away from their day-to-day duties to enjoy and be with their families.”

The IMAG History and Science Center is taking extensive steps to help ensure a safe, educational, and entertaining experience for all its guests in a clean environment with best practices for promoting good health during the COVID-19 pandemic. All IMAG staff wear face masks for the safety and protection of visitors. Proper hand washing and good hygiene practices are promoted and convenient sanitation stations are provided throughout the premises. While public safety tips and reminders are also posted throughout the premises, safe social distancing is encouraged with guides and routes clearly marked. In addition, enhanced hourly cleaning and disinfecting protocols are in practice plus additional deep cleanings are scheduled twice daily to thoroughly address all touch points, surfaces, spaces, and exhibits.
