Explorations V Children’s Museum offers three floors of colorful, interactive entertainment, and opportunities for parents and children to connect through learning.
Exploring the Five Senses
Your family's Central Florida vacation must include a visit to Downtown Lakeland's Explorations V Children’s Museum. Exhibits are geared toward children who have begun walking, all the way up to age 12.
Wondering what that Roman numeral “V” represents in the museum’s name? It symbolizes the five senses, which this fun-filled museum appeals to with hands-on art and science exhibits, and programs.
Exhibits are Just for Kids
Kids with a natural attraction to the limelight can show off their acting, singing, dancing or puppeteering chops on stage as the crowd goes wild.

Music & Sound Studio
At the Music & Sound Studio, children are the Producers in a fully interactive studio with sound mixing, stage production, and show promotion. Here children will learn about the wonders of sound and how it impacts our daily lives.
The Explore Store looks like your favorite supermarket and lets your little ones pretend to fulfill an imaginary grocery list, act as a sales clerk, or a stock person as they restock shelves for the next group of mini-shoppers.
Here’s your child’s chance to broadcast the news at a news desk, or create a wild and wacky weather forecast in front of the weather map – all while on camera.
Travel with Explorations V
Your little adventurer can hop behind the wheel of a sheriff’s patrol car, pilot an airplane, soar in a hot air balloon, explore the high seas in a boat, or even navigate the galaxy in a space shuttle.
The First Responders Gallery houses a Fire Engine and Sheriff’s Car. Kids can start a simulated fire and extinguish it.
Explorations V also features temporary exhibits to keep things fresh, and daily programs to connect children and parents through learning.
