This is the best place for children. It is so inter-active for children of various ages. They keep the displays fresh and updated. Prices are more than reasonable and a good time for all is guaranteed. Great activity choices and very educational. It is must when looking for something to do with your children and grandchildren.

The Lincoln Children's Museum is a three story extravaganza of exploration, hands-on play, and imagination gone wild! My tweens are fascinated by many of the stations which include a replica space pod, face painting, an enlarged ground squirrel tunnel, and a stage equipped with many costumes. There are activities for children of all ages, and their parents.

Kids love it. There is something for everyone. I have been there many times with children from 2 to 10. Would be a fun stop on a road trip.

We love the Children's Museum. My kids are 9, 7 and 5 and each have their own favorite part. They've remodeled a lot of it and the new stuff is really cool. The giant cuckoo clock is a big draw. The kids love stacking the blocks up in the 15 minutes in between the times that the cuckoo clock sounds... More

Our kids (ages 6 and 8) loved everything about this!! My wife and I had to separate just to keep up with what each of our kids wanted to experience! We could have spent all day there, but had other engagements to attend! We will be back soon!

We've been in probably 20 kids museums here in the USA and overseas. This one is by far the best. Very educational, hands on and soooooooo fun for the little ones. Spend the day, they won't get bored.

Every time we come for the Roller Skating national championships this is a must do on our list. We live this museum. Our hometown children's museum doesn't even come close to comparing to this museum! Another great trip.
