Museum Help

This is your go-to resource for Museum updates and community resources during the COVID-19 school closure.

Greetings Explorers!

We are sharing important information to help you stay connected to your children’s museum while our community faces the challenging days and weeks ahead.

The Museum’s entire staff spent 40 hours each doing a deep clean of every exhibit surface, manipulative, and even washed the walls. We are using enhanced cleaning procedures in addition to our regular cleaning schedule.

We have resources that could help your family or a family you know! Use the boxes below to learn more about how we can help you.

Do you want to help Explorations V keep these services going? Buy a membership online or for families with older children, become an alumni member.  Every dollar of memberships and alumni families goes straight to helping children learn and families find stability.

Grateful to the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce for including Explorations V in the gift card incentive program!
