My daughter loves this place. They have a ton of stuff to do for kids and we went during Halloween and they had a fun little kids haunted house thing set up. Lots of kids running around but well worth the visit.

Our kids had a good time (3 & 5), but I expected it to be a little more substantial/science centerish. Its basically just like a big play ground, not educational at all but the kids did seem to enjoy it. They have an art area where kids can paint, numerous play areas, and a ball room which was probably their... More

I have two boys, 7 and 5, they loved the museum!! There is so much to do! We got there just 15 minutes after they opened and it was very busy! There is so much for the kids to do, you could easily spend a whole day there. The one downside is you also have to pay the same price... More

This place has something for every age! Our daughter is 2 and she loved the main level of the museum. Specifically, they have a replica Hy-Vee grocery store that she absolutely loved. They also have a 2 story play house and she could've spent hours putting the baby dolls to sleep in the upstairs bedroom. They also had a replica... More

A must visit with kids!! There are always fun new exhibits and the regular exhibits are fun and entertaining. Great way to spend a day and get the kids worn out. When my nephew was visiting we were able to go two days in a row and all the kids were still enjoying themselves. This is a do not miss... More

I took my 5 & 8 year old grand kids. 5.5 HRS. later we left! They loved it all especially the Hy Vee, Omaha steaks bakery area. There is enough on 2 floors to keep a wide age range busy, involved & interested. The house was fun for the 5 year old. The 8 LOVED Dr. Area. I took them... More

I went to Omaha's Children's Museum with my husband and our two year old daughter. There was something to do everywhere you looked; however, the crowds of parents and children made it difficult to navigate. For an extra charge you could experience the changeable events (for us it was farm themed) upstairs. Our daughter loved playing on the farming equipment... More

Hands on, educational fun. This is a great place for the littles. I'd say 2nd grade and younger. It can get overstimulating for all. I highly recommend bringing something for the headache that all the noise will give you but it is worth it. Kiddos love this stuff.

This is a hands on museum for kids. They can drive a train, dress up, let buckets of balls go through tubes and when they are watching them go it fills a bucket and they can go over and they will all fall on their head. It is raining ping pong balls and the kids love it. I hear now... More
