“Fun for the whole family”

The mission of the Explorium of Lexington is to create a fun and dynamic hands-on learning environment that inspires imagination and curiosity. In 1987, a group of inspired citizens presented the idea of a children’s museum to Lexington Mayor Scotty Baesler and future Mayor Pam Miller. With the assistance of Lord Cultural Resources, a consulting firm in Toronto, the city began serious planning for the Lexington Children’s Museum. The site selection committee considered several sites and chose the current location in Victorian Square. Since first opening its doors in 1990 the Museum has hosted over a million visitors. Renamed Explorium of Lexington in 2005, the facility is a success with both children and adults. Attendance averages 85,000 visitors annually, and we serve an additional 10,000 with outreach activities in the community. Explorium serves a much broader area than just Fayette County. We have hosted guests from over 90 different Kentucky counties, most states, and even other countries.
