A great place to explore and learn! The adults had a great time watching the children discover all the different sections this place had to offer.

This was a fun outing for the kids ages (3) and (6). Slight issues with parking were a bit frustrating, the building is in downtown Lakeland so finding parking was challenging until I found the public parking garage (costs $). It was just a short walk to Explorations. We brought a stroller and snacks/water in preparation of staying a couple hours around lunchtime. Food/drink is allowed on the 2nd floor which is great. If you didn’t bring lunch there are several restaurants nearby within walking distance, you can pop out to and come back into the museum as long as you have your admission receipt.
There are 3 floors to the museum with activities on each floor, the kids really had a great time playing puppets, going into the “grocery store” shopping and jamming onstage making music. Even my 14 year old was having fun! They of course didn’t want to leave but we will be back. It’s a great place to have fun in inclement weather or to get out of the heat. Make sure you check for Groupons for a discount.

My daughter and I took my 17 month old grandson to this museum. He had so much fun playing in the little grocery store, "driving" the police car, fire truck, boat, spaceship. There were lots of areas for imagination; dress up, stage, puppets, music instruments; he loved the piano! There was an "orange grove" in one area where you pick oranges, put them on conveyor belts and pretend they are being washed, packaged and shipped. One area had a little train set up, which he also loved. There were many other things to play with even though he was a little young for them. Overall we had a great time and I'm sure we'll be back when he's older.

Took my 2 year old son here and he had a blast! His favorite part was the grocery store! It was set up exactly like a grocery store! He also loved the police car! Everything was so cool! The top floor could use some more activities but the basement is set up like a orange grove with how they process oranges to make juice! He had a blast! So fun! Thank you!

Not very big but a lot for the kids to do. It is cute and will keep them busy for awhile. There are two levels so don't miss the upstairs.
