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 grandparents took me to the children’s museum in Lincoln as a kid with my sister many times. I can remember how excited I always was to be able to go. I just returned recently and was struck just how great of a place the facility is for kids! There is so much to do and a lot of it... 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

Three levels of interactiveness for kids. Be a doctor, drive a firetruck, play for the Huskers, fly a plane... you name it, kids can have fund doing it here. Be sure you don't miss the basement-- my kids love being prairie dogs in the underground village, and watching their imaginations come alive on the stage is fun for everyone.

My children, ages 2, 6, and 8, enjoyed this place. I was exhausted after we left (but that's okay!). They had so many different things to do from roll playing to exploring. We got many great pictures at this place! I almost couldn't get my 2 year old out of the fire truck! He was in heaven. I would highly... More
