Great place for kids but many exhibits not working when my son pushed buttons. Many things to see and do but would have been more fun with sound. Parking around the museum was hard to find with many garages full. Over all fun visit but needs improvement. Reasonable price.

My kids ages 10 & 6 absolutely love the Lincoln Children's Museum!! It's 3 stories & has great entertainment for any age on each level. We found ourselves coming over a couple times a month so got the family membership it's so worth it. The location is perfect for walking from our hotel & other great activities & great restaurants...

This place is perfect for the smaller ones!! It is not overwhelming and there is plenty of shade! The animals are all to where you can see or some you can even feed! The staff is amazing as well! The train ride is also enjoyed by all!

We visited there several weeks ago with our 1 year and a half old daughter. She loved the water area so much! It was really a great place for children to play at.

We have an annual pass and my kids love this place. Its a great place to go in winter time when kids are tired of being cooped up in the house. Entertainment for all ages!!

I visited the LCM almost every week in June and my 3 & 1 year old truly enjoyed it each time. They never got bored because there are quite a few exhibits to explore and some favorites to revisit. The apple picking was always exciting. A child can't go wrong with any exhibits because they all build and encourage imagination!

great place to kill a few hours and let the kids run wild -- there were 3 levels of activities, not much in the way of amenities (food/drink) but that's OK -- it's just a place for children to be children

Used to be a member of it when our kids were a bit younger. They STILL ask to go there occasionally! One of the best museums for kiddos around!

A great place to take the kids. It is set up for young kids under 12. Plan on brining a book to read, as the kids will be spending a few hours here.
