This is a great museum! The activities are engaging and fun.... for lower elementary school kids(pre school- 4th grade). It did keep my preteens engaged as a first time experience. The orange room in the basement was super cool! But over all I definitely recommend for younger children!!

My boys and I really enjoy Explorations V! We hang out in the Publix shopping area the most, but also love the OJ factory. There are so many spots to find an activity and get into the play zone. We visit as much as we can.
