Your Support Makes the Explorium Even Better!

While the Explorium earns income through our admissions, birthday parties, memberships, store, group visits, and an appropriation from Lexington Fayette Urban County Government, we rely heavily on individual and corporate donors to provide the high quality exhibits and programs you enjoy. In fact, new exhibits are funded through donations. All programs are provided free with Museum admission thanks to our donors.

You can make a donation today by selecting the donate now button and make your contribution. You can make a one-time donation or sign up to make a monthly contribution! Contributions bring smiles to many, many children! Thank you.

Explorium of Lexington is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization so your contributions are tax deductible. For more information about giving through a credit card, stock transfer, or through your will or estate, please call Executive Director Lee Ellen Martin at 859-258-3253 ext. 13 or email her at
