We took our three grandkids (all under 5) to get them out of the sun for a day. Very inexpensive entertainment for hours of fun. Everything is hands-on. The kids especially liked the play grocery store, complete with kid sized carts and a beeping scanner checkout. Also the orange juice "processing plant." Great place for kids to use their energy...

If you're looking for something in Central Florida for your children to do inside (yet very active) this should be near the top of your list. And as a bonus you get to enjoy beautiful downtown Lakeland, a classy small city. The Explorations V staff continues to maintain a quality children's attraction. Parents and grandparents will have fun watching their... More

We've been annual pass holders for 2 years now (my son is almost 5 yrs old) and have seen lots of updates and improvements since then. Publix shopping area has had a complete remodel as well as the interactive fire truck! If your child has an imagination, they will have a blast! Best of all is the 10:30 am weekday... More

Needs major help. Most interactive exhibits were broken or not fully functional. We spent an hour and were ready to leave. Went once - won't go again. Cheap entrance fee but still not worth the cost.

Exploration V is a neat place to bring your kids for fun learning activities. My son's favorite part is the downstairs citrus learning station where he can pick fake oranges off of the trees, collect them in a basket, and then climb up some stairs to put them in a huge "juicing machine" contraption the size of the whole room....

Very well done exploration museum for kids of all young ages. Two floors of activities. If it is raining, too hot to have the kids play outside, or if the kids are bored, this museum is a perfect treat. They do have annual passes and family plans. Not too expensive for a one time visit. Check out their web site... More

We were given annual memberships as a gift (they're also offered at certain times of the year at a large discount on Groupon), and we come every week for the art program on Fridays. It's a great place for younger kids (though our 10 year old feels she's getting to old for it). The staff is always very nice. We... More

My nephew had his birthday here, we had a private room for the party and the kids admissions were included in the party price. I brought my sisters kids (ages 5, 3) and they had a blast! There are so many things to explore. They have several hands-on displays, including a tree house room were they could climb, and an... More

If you live in Lakeland and have preschool aged kids, an annual membership is a must. There are some good permanent exhibits for kids to play at, plus there are plenty of special events on the X5 calendar.

Not badly priced, such a fun experience for smaller children. They have a mini publix market for kids to play in as if they work or shop their as well as many other fun pretend play areas! Everyone should visit at least once!
