We came to town for a football game the following day - driving over 2 days from Indiana. When we neared Lincoln, I gave my 6 yr old some choices of Things-to-do. "Children's Museum!" I think he was the perfect age for the exhibits. The price was right, and he a had a good escape from the car - playing... More

We came to Nebraska for a football game and needed a diversion for our 6 year old. This was perfect for him. Hours of enjoyment for kids.

There is so much to do at the Children's Museum! There are three levels of well thought out FUN which kept my grandkids busy for several hours. The cost is very reasonable for the amount of time we spent there.

My 4 and nearly 3 year olds spent the entire day at the museum and still didn't want to leave. The museum has all kinds of activities for kids, such as the ball works, dress up, crafts, planes to climb in and so much more. It's not just a place for kids under 5 either. I could see kids out... More

My kids have a BALL every time we visit the Lincoln Children's Museum. It is three stories, with something to see and do everywhere you look! My kids favorites: 2 facepaint stations, a realistic space station replica to climb around with space suits to wear, huge water play area, kid sized gopher holes, and a real semi truck cab to...

Excellent children's museum for all types of children. Put on a play, be a local TV anchor or sent something through an air powered tube to the bank teller. There is so much to do. My child is a toddler and we love the splash/water exhibit and the stage area where we can run like crazy. He also loves to... More
