This children's museum is very cool. I have been multiple times when my children were toddlers and when they were preschool/school age. I have to say it is hard to keep them in one area by yourself. There are multiple levels and ways to get around. We enjoyed it so much more when they were older and not as much... More

My 2.5 year old could probably go here everyday. She often asks to go to the 'seum! She LOVES the Hy-vee grocery store and play house. The bubble show in the theater is another favorite!

If you have small children then the Omaha Children's Museum is a must. All of the classic children's museum features (Art, science, play...) but done exceptional. The staff works hard to have fresh experiences each and every visit.

Took our 23 month old grandson to children's museum on the Sunday before Labor Day. We arrived at 1:30 pm and there was a long line to get in so we waited about 20 minutes. They really need more cashiers at the check-in counter. When we got inside my grandson loved the area where the balls are moved around in... More

It changes so it is never boring. It is loud but who could not put up with a little loud to see all the smiles.

We visit about 5 times per year-always enjoy it! As much fun for grandmas and grandpas, as for the kids to activate their creativity! Especially love the changing exhibits-we have a little guy who loved the superhero exhibit when there--and was not happy that the superhero's are not regulars! Fortunately the wonderful variety in the gift shop offset his grief!

The grandchildren love the variety of activities. Special seasonal areas are also very special. I appreciate the number of volunteers, as well as how easy it is to keep track of the children.

The children's museum has something for everyone. Even adults as long as you still have some kid in your heart. Not the cheapest activity with your kids, but definitely something you can make a day of.
