The International Museum of Art & Science is now a free wireless internet hub! Please feel free to park in our West (main) parking lot to access this FREE service. ✨Did you know? Wi-Fi doesn't actually stand for "Wireless Fidelity", it's a brand name! We use this term to reference the wireless networking technology which allows all of our capable devices to access the internet and exchange data with each other, creating a 'network' of information. Using radio frequency signals, you're able to access all sorts of cool things on the internet, like this post you're reading now! 🤯🧠💻✨ Thank you City of McAllen TX Government and McAllen ISD! *Please keep in mind that delays and lags in service may be possible due to the high volume of people using wi-fi across the country.
We miss seeing our @mcallenisd students and all of the students who visit IMAS for field trips, workshops, and guided tours.

Please share the information with those you know and consider picking up a free, nutritional meal for your child today! #MakeTheMost of #McAllen
