Fun safe place with lots of things for little kids (and adults) to do. The Lincoln Children's Museum is super fun as well. Cool in the summer when it's hot outside.

Very fun for kids ages 2-6, bring your phone or something to read while your child is entertained for hours. Only negative is the lack of parent amenities. There is an attempt at a concession stand upstairs but it is understaffed and offers very little.

Our granddaughter loves to visit the Children's museum - she especially liked the saber tooth tigers but is also enjoying the new construction display.

It's a tad expensive for the adults who don't actually do anything. Also it's not a museum but more of a Fun & Play for toddlers to about 5 or 6. Lots of stuff for them to do and interact with.
