Explorium of Lexington Board of Directors




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 The Square. Since opening in 1990, the museum has hosted over 3 million visitors.

Renamed the Explorium of Lexington in 2005, the facility is a success for children and adults.
