Visited the museum Sunday, June 29, 2014. We were a part of 7 - 4 adults, 2 teenagers and a 7 year old ( the reason we went). This museum is located near downtown Omaha so parking is a problem. Had owe visited during the week or on a Saturday I do not believe we would have found a place... More

We love the time that we spend at the museum! They're always changing things up to keep it interesting. Even my 12 year old boy has fun!

I have two children, my daughter is 6 and my son is 3. They would have stayed all day if I let them. Their two favorite activities: the ball room, where there are small plastic balls EVERYWHERE and pipes with air flowing through them.

Our grandson's 4 and 2 had a blast! Be sure to get a bucket to keep a lot of balls in, because you will need one! Fun to watch them run around and watching the balls go through all the tubes. Interesting presentation on bubbles too.

We have lived in the Omaha area for several years and have 5 children 10 and under. OCM is a consistent hit with all the kids every time we visit. The staff is helpful and friendly. The family membership is great; they don't penalize you for having large families. Love OCM!

This was the last stop on our trip. The kiddo ran all over, and really enjoyed the museum. The room with all the plastic balls was really fun, and got the whole group involved.

OCM has many innovative areas of play for all ages. The Dinosaur Exhibit has just opened for the summer. Plan to check it out soon.

A small muesum but could spend a few hours. We were disappointed that the construction area and water table were closed, a large area of the muesum. There is a nice craft type area but I felt like it wasn't organized well. Middle of the week and it was busy. Our kids 2 and 5 spent two hours exploring.

I have 2 and 4 year old kids. They never tire going to the museum. They love playing there and the exhibits change in the upper level keeping it fresh!
