Explorations V Children’s Museum provides 3 floors of kid-powered, hands-on exhibits and mind-stretching programs in the arts and sciences to celebrate the five senses! Art and Science are the pathways for many learning concepts, freeing the child’s creativity and unleashing the power of play. The Museum was founded on the premise that children, like adults, use all five senses to explore and learn about the world around them, hence the V in our name.
The Second Floor includes a small children’s art gallery, interactive science components and brain-teasers as well as Temporary Exhibits located in the Dreamer’s Gallery.
The First Floor features Our Town including exhibits that offer action-packed opportunities for learning through the basics of music appreciation, art, theatre, math, science and history. The new Tot Spot is an engaging area designed especially for our youngest visitors.
The Lower Floor introduces children to local history and Our World through
O is for Oranges, from seed to Our World. Pick, pack, sort and slide in this
fanciful Florida orange grove that takes visitors on a journey of discovery to Asia, Africa, Australia and America.
Our newest exhibit gallery, the TOT SPOT is now open!
