It’s a great place that is fairly cost friendly. Lots of stations for kids to go to that keep it fun for a longer time. There’s not a ton of staff, so things can get kinda messy. I also don’t really..... more

Small areas for activities limited number of participants. More reasonable prices for admission perhaps.

Great zoo for an afternoon. It is small enough to see everything in one day. The train ride was fun. Getting a chance to feed the giraffes and the goats was so fun.

I had my twins second birthday party at the Lincoln Children's Museum and it was absolutely amazing. Lillie helped me plan and she was so informative and helpful. It was so nice to be able to show up and the decorations and everything was taken care of for me. We have been there many times but this was definitely our best experience.
There is fun for all ages at the Lincoln Children's Museum. There's 3 stories of play areas. Slides. Areas to play pretend. And even a small baby area for the tiny toddlers to safely play. There's even an area to buy drinks and snacks. My children always leave happy and tired.
Lots of fun for the young and the young and heart! Try out different skills, use imagination, creativity and exploration for a wonderful and adventurous of time. The museum is comprised of different areas with various themes. Children and adults can pretend to be a banker, a dentist, a restaurant staff person. If the environment and nature is more your thing, children can climb through trees and mazes pretending to be prairie dogs as they climb through intricate labyrinth tunnels and pop out above. Want to be Center Stage? There are two areas where children can go behind the scenes and put on their own puppet show. ...Or be center stage and act out various scenes with their own imagination for audiences to cheer them on! Elaborate working clock allows children to build blocks and when the cuckoo strikes, the blocks fall down and the children can build again.
Took my 2 year old. She had a great time. Loved the Fire Truck, the bridge and the babies at the hospital. We were disappointed the water area was gone now. Hopefully they will add something similar again. Lots to do and see. Can keep little ones busy for hours! This place is a bit on the pricey side, especially for adults, but for a trip once or twice a year, it's not so bad.
I wish we lived in Lincoln just to take our kids every weekend to this place. My 2.5 years old son loved it. We arrived at 4 and one hour was not eanought for him to explore everything. Loved it loved it loved it.
