The Exploration Station is very popular with our family group of twelve children and four adults. The children know to remove their shoes before entering the learning areas. An enclosed play station for ages 1 to 3yrs delight the toddlers. There are numerous activities for all ages. Shopping is discovered at the 'store'. Into the cart go the artificial fruits,... More

We were visiting family in Lumberton over the weekend and wanted to find a place to take our 16 month baby to play. This place is great!!! Our baby boy had an absolute blast and didn't want to leave. I am sure when we return to visit we will also be back to Exploration Station. I wish more cities had... More

This could be the best Learning Centers around if they had the donations to make it better. The concept is great, but help is needed. I wish corporations that help non-profit businesses would also take a look at this place. As I said, they have the right ideas, but not enough help or money to make it the best.

Great hands-on activities; fun for an afternoon out with the kids or book it for a birthday party, either way the children will have a blast and you will too!

We live in Fayetteville and we decided to try and do something different than usual. So, we went and checked out Exploration Station. We were literally the only ones there for a good hour and it was nice. Our son is fourteen months old and doesn't really like to play in the toddler section of anything, so we were a... More

For those of us in Robeson County, Exploration Station is one our best treasures. I have been a fan since taking my own girls there many moons ago, and now I am so thankful it is still in business for my granddaughter to enjoy. I can remember taking a different route through town, when I didn't have time to stop... More

This place is great. I have taken my son and grandson there to enjoy an afternoon out. In a time where family doesn't have many options for good clean fun it is refreshing to know that places like this are still available. There is plenty to do like dress up in costumes, go on a shopping spree, pretend to be... More
