“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

This is really just an amazing place for kids! My kids are 5 and 7 and they still love to go there. They have constantly changing exhibits, as well as some that are always there. The three floors ensure that there is always something to do. They offer summer camps and overnights too. Especially nice if it's not so nice outside.

“Great Value! Great Fun!”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

We stopped here on our way through Lincoln after deciding it was too hot for the zoo. What a nice surprise! It was a little busy...but I would expect that on such a hot day. Three stories of awesome exhibits. Even my husband and I got in on the fun! By far the best children's museum we've been to!! Kids have asked to go back nearly every day since!

“Indoor Family fun”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

The museum is an absolute blast for families. There is something for everyone. Parking is normally easy, but husker game days make it impossible. Very inexpensive. Nice on baking summer days or frigid winter days. Special exhibits come through often. Our Kids love playing at the museum and everything is safe and fun for them. Best for kids under 12.

“Little but packed”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

The museum wasn't the biggest but it was filled with fun things my kids - 10,8,6 all loved. They really liked the water portion of the museum and the pretend health center.
