When was the last time you let the kids run amok at an indoor playground? While we’re all for visiting one of our state’s numerous epic outdoor playgrounds, sometimes the weather in Kentucky doesn’t cooperate (hello, sweltering summer heat or mid-winter ice storms!). It’s always good to have a tried-and-true indoor playground in your back pocket for a rainy day (literally); and luckily, we have a gem in Lexington, Kentucky, that kids of all ages are sure to love.

Have you ever taken the kids to the Explorium of Lexington? It really is quite an amazing indoor playground in Kentucky… and it’s educational, too!
