On our trip to see the high school state wrestling tournament we were able to spend a couple hours at the museum with our toddler. She loved all the activities and we could have easily stayed there much longer. If we lived in the area we would purchase a membership

We enjoy seeing our grandson's face light up with joy and imagination at all the different areas! Go when well-rested because it's high energy when you step in the door.

Have taken the Grand Kids several times over the past years. They enjoy it as I let them run loose. However, I find it very expensive. Senior rate is high and about all I do is try to find a place to sit do to medical problems. I believe the areas have gotten better as far as cleanlines. Any special... More

This definitely caters more to kids 12 and under. They have special engagements that are often geared towards old crowds. You can spend as little or as much time as you want here. For younger families I'd definitely recommend a yearly pass. If there is a downside, it's parking. Busy days can make it almost impossible to find a spot... More

We enjoy this museum with our three-year-old granddaughter. She loves the hands-on crafts. They have lots of fun activities. If we lived there, we would become members.

Kids love this place and all of the activity going on all around the adults will entertain you! Plan on a couple of hours for this attraction, there are picnic tables outside if you want to bring a sack lunch for the nicer days!

We brought our 4 kids here ages 3 - 14 and all of them loved it! They had a great time and it was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Parking was a little difficult as all the spots in their lot were full, but we found parking across the street from their parking lot.

The Omaha Children's Museum is a great place to take children. Hands on exhibits and a large building to roam around.

Great place to go with small children. I took children ranging in ages 20 months - 11 years old. The 10 and 11 year old were bored but the 20 month old, 3 year old and 5 year old had a great time. Lots of different play areas. Loved the HyVee experience, the water play area and the ball area.
