Lots of fun to do there. Always a fun theme or exhibit. Friendly staff. Parking can be a little busy. We have been there at least a dozen times, not counting when i was a child!

I have taken my son to the Omaha Children's Museum at least 30 times. We went for the Christmas specials, the Halloween trick or treat nights, and just to hang around & have fun. I think his favorite was when they had the dinosaur exhibit. He's 14 now, and not much interested in it, but my grandkids are now old... More

We have taken our son to many children's museums. I would say this is one of the better ones we have been too. It's layout is relatively simple and easy to follow your kid. The staff was amazingly attentive. I have never seen staff so engaged and taking care of things. And there was a good variety of activities that... More

My son loved it here and we were both amazed at the amount of stuff for him to do. Brilliant place for children - keeps them occupied for hours! Will be returning before we fly home. Only thing that let it down for me was that I wasn't allowed to use to wifi when it was time to leave (for... More

Visited today with a 6 and 7 year old. Lots of new activities since my last visit and it's even more fun for the kids! Kept them busy for a few hours, and we could have easily stayed longer. I liked the newer area upstairs with the Rescue Squad truck they can pretend to drive, and construction equipment. You won't... More

I stayed close by and wanted to check out the children.s museum. This was a fun afternoon for all ages with creative and educational exhibits and activities they offer. Everyone was friendly and others were all having a good time. I ended up going back to the hotel and telling a family who then returned loving it as much as... More
