My only complaint about the place was the long line to get in, and the cost of entrance. Besides that the place was amazing! There are multiple areas for kids to play, climb, explore, search, try new things, and discover. We easily spent 3 hours here! I would recommend checking out the traveling exhibits to make sure it is something... More

Our two grandkids (5 yrs and 20 mos) loved the Omaha Children's Museum. Lots of variety and experiences. It is apparently a local custom to charge a low admission and then charge for nearly every additional feature once inside. The Dinosaur Dig exhibit was extra at the door which we gladly paid. Located next to this exhibit was a little... More

Maybe because it was a rainy day in august this place was packed! I had trouble keeping track of my kids due to crowds. Get there early for parking and watch out.. people parked very randomly. Depending on where you were parked it was very hard to back out without hitting an illegally parked car. Great exhibits inside. We spent... More

This was a very nice Children's Museum. We even noticed outside that the businesses around it were geared toward children: a hot dog restaurant, an ice cream shop, a toy store, etc. Too bad our children were a little old for it. They are 8 & 9, and I would say that the cut off for this particular children's museum... More

This place is a very well run, well organized suprise in the 'little' town of Omaha, The way the place is laid out makes it easy to corral kids, and keep them interested in multiple very different dynamic areas.

4 years ago this children's museum was not very attractive. However, they have worked hard at making this place better, especially their second floor exhibitions. I became a member this year.

Took our toddler twins for a fun morning on a hot Nebraska day. We appreciate that there are activities for kids of most ages, which allows for everyone to play at once. We'll definitely be back!

We thought the traveling dino exhibit was great. The kids had a good time running around and trying different things - but the 2 hours we spent there before the kids were over it didn't justify the cost for us. Our boys are 3 and 6 and they just weren't overly thrilled aside from the Dino area. I think it... More

Our three year old had a great time. There were a variety of activities. Hand gel everywhere and staff was visible.
