With three floors and 23,300-square-feet of space, there is a seemingly endless supply of things to learn and explore at the Lincoln Children’s Museum. There are wonderful hands-on and interactive exhibits for even the littlest artists and scientists. In addition to the permanent exhibits, you’ll often find fun traveling exhibitions and special family-friendly events. For families visiting the University of Nebraska and/or staying downtown, a visit here is easy as it is conveniently located in the heart of the downtown area.
The museum is closed on Mondays and most major holidays throughout the year. Children under 1 year of age are free. Admission for children 1-year-old is $5; children and adults age 2 to 61 are $8; and seniors 62 and older cost $7.50.
