My husband and I took our 6 year old son. We had a great time but I would say 6 was definitely on the brink of being too old to really enjoy everything. I think the 4-5 and under kids would really love all there is to do at this Children's museum.

The museum is at least a monthly trip for us. It is great for babies to probably 10-11. There are 3 levels so it is easy to keep an eye on multiple kids. They have a new cuckoo clock that has so many fun things for kids to do. My boys can spend an hour sending blocks up, building the... More

This is one of the most requested places to visit from my grandchildren. They enjoy exploring the various "rooms"/settings in the museum. They also enjoy the numerous hands-on activities available for them. This is a great way to spend a couple of hours in the day with young children.

Great place to take the kids to stimulate their minds and keep their creative juices flowing. They also have adult nights occasionally as well!

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!
