Explorations V Children’s Museum is an independent, nonprofit 501c3 organization situated in the heart of historic downtown Lakeland.

The V in the museum’s current name represents the 5 senses, and the museum provides opportunities for all children to learn through interactive exploration. Kid-powered, hands-on experiences include the beloved “O is for Oranges, From Seed to Our World” exhibit, engaging children in our region’s rich agricultural history.

With a stated mission to curate the world for all children to explore, the award-winning museum is committed to building for the future.

In 2022, Explorations V will move into its new home in Bonnet Springs Park, becoming the Florida Children’s Museum. Here, well-loved exhibits will be re-homed or reimagined alongside dynamic new opportunities for interactive exploration.
