My kids love the variety of things they can do at the Lincoln Children's Museum. They especially love the water features where they can dam or squirt water. This is fun for too hot or too cold days, any day really

There is street parking as well as a lot diagonal from the museum and the first hour is free! It is hardly ever full unless it is a football Saturday!
