NTI Camp

We have 20 spots for NTI Camp.

Children will do their NTI work during the school day and then have Explorium fun after! There will be staff to help them log on, trouble shoot technology, assist with work, and lead fun activities after school.

Children must bring their own devices, headphones, books, notebooks, project supplies, snacks, drink, and lunch.

Children will be seated 6 feet apart and there is a limit of 10 per room. Masks are required in the common areas.

Welcome to the Explorium of Lexington

Children’s Museums are the fastest growing type of museum in the country and are unique among museums for the large number of interactive exhibits and educational programming presented to visitors. Visitors engage in hands-on experiences that inspire a curiosity for learning.

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 three million visitors.
