This is a wonderful interactive experience for young children. They can "fly" in a real Cessna plane, crawl through prairie dog tunnels, play in the grocery store, drive a semi cab, play in the water feature and spend hours playing in a variety of settings. Kids love it and never want to leave.

This is a great place to take younger children. They love to play dress up and test out adult careers in a kid friendly environment. I take family who enjoy running around and visiting all the stations. The favorites in my family are the doctor's office, fire station, and police station. They do enjoy face painting, playing in the prairie... More

My Grandchildren call this the "toy museum" and they request a trip to the museum each time they come. There are exhibits for all ages - even a baby/ toddler area. Many wonderful programs are offered throughout the year. A must-see!

My kids (2 & 5) love going to the children's museum in Lincoln. Pretend play at is best - ambulance driver, grocery store, pizza maker, veterinarian, fireman, theater. You can also put on your own face paint (washes off easily). Park in the garage 1 block away, and make a day of it, there are plenty of good places to... More

We needed a place to take our hyperactive 2-year-old while in Lincoln to attend a graduation and this three-story museum was the perfect place! Our toddler was thoroughly entertained and we spent about two hours there. There were a lot of interesting things for adults to check out as well. Visitors can check out the fire engine, airplane, Mack truck,... More

This is a great museum and they have put a great deal of pride into it. Stop here with the kids and you won't be disappointed. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time because it is three floors of awesomeness!
