We've come here a couple of times now when visiting Omaha. My girls (ages 9 and 8) love this place. It's really a great environment full of activities and play/learn areas. We've went to the dinosaur exhibit (which was amazing - life sized moving replicas!) And the Lego exhibit. Both were great. My kids love the play "town" where they... More

Wow! This place has changed so much from when I was a child and went there with my family. Everything is bright and new. I love the different areas they have for children to climb. The one in the superhero area was particularly fun for our toddler. I also like the different areas that children can create art. They had... More

My 3 year old had a good time but I honestly didn't feel the price of admission was worth it...within an hour he was bored and ready to go. This is good if you need a place for the kids to run off some energy or if they have an attraction that you haven't seen or have access to. (The... More

The foam ball exhibit is a blast (literally) and great for kids to learn scientific principles through play. My kids really enjoyed this museum. We were visiting from out of town, so we appreciated that Omaha Children's Museum is part of the ASTC Travel Passport program.

My 4 year old loved the Children's Museum, but he was almost bored at some points. There are quite a few activities, but maybe having a friend with us would have been more entertaining for him.

The zoo was nice, all the animals were out and playful. The only issue I have is that the price is way to much compared to the size of the zoo.

We took my grandchild to the Omaha Children's Museum several years ago and had a great time. However on this trip we were sorely disappointed. The whole place smelled like urine, and though there were some fun things to do for the kids, alot of the stuff they wanted to do was an extra cost. And why are parents paying... More

The only reason it does not get all stars is that I think the Lincoln Childrens museum is better. I miss that you can not do both museums for one price, but we do try to go often. It is great for the younger children, but my older kids don't find as much fun here anymore. I was happy to... More
