Explorations V to become Florida Children’s Museum in Bonnet Springs
Explorations V Children’s Museum is shifting to a new identity: Florida Children’s Museum.
The rebranding initiative reflects the growth of the museum and will be used when it opens next year at Bonnet Springs Park, currently under development in Lakeland. The rebranding includes a modern and fancy logo, a new website and a social media presence, the museum said in a press release.
Museum visitors will continue to see the Explorations V Children’s Museum logo and branding at the current location in the Kress Building in downtown Lakeland.

The Florida Children’s Museum will carry on the tradition with pride and into the future.
