  • Imagination and creativity is alive in the Lincoln Children's Museum. Their staff is very friendly and great with kids. Be sure to check often for upcoming events and new workshops to hit the museum soon. This is a well thought out organization you can count on for great opportunities for the community. Very pleased with everything the museum has to share! Godspeed to Lincoln Children's Museum... When I grow up I want to be... mine is Professional Firework Display Operator. Let your children discover what they want to be when they grow up too. Would leave my kids with them any day!
  • Currently under construction for renovation and several exhibit stations were closed. Would have been nice to know beforehand or been offered a discount but my son still had tons of fun and once the renovations are finished it'll be AMAZING! Can't wait to see what they do!
