The Children's Museum is a fun spot in the middle of downtown Lincoln (14th and P Street) that has a little for adults as well. Parking is a slight challenge, but that has to be expected in the heart of a state capital. The exhibits are first-rate, and kids can learn a lot when/if they stop to read about them... More

Kids from 6 months up to 12/ 13 yr olds will love this place. Adults love to play with their kids there. 3 levels, lots of fun. Check it out. Water area is great, traveling exhibit. Stage for acting, and face painting area.

It was just a wonderful time with my baby. He played many roles such as pizza maker, player team, mechanic and so on. We lived in Venezuela and it is first experience in this kind of museum.

When my grandsons come to visit it is the place to go to let them run off some steam and really enjoy being a child! The museum even has a membership that helps with the cost if you are going...

We are used to great childrens' museums on our travels, but the Lincoln museum was a 10. My 10 y/o daughter had a ton of fun and my husband and i actually loved the Johnny Carson room, where you can be "on tv"! The sports room was a hit also, with NE football apparel galore. Price was a bit high... More

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.
