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.

My grandkids love it here, as did my kids, but the hours are lousy. Unless you are a stay at home parent, or retired, the hours are very inconvenient. If the hours were more convenient, I would rate this MUCH higher. Sadly, as it is, definitely NOT worth the money.

This is a great children's museum with lots of hands-on stuff to do. Very educational and fun. Kids love trying the various exhibits.

We come here when visiting Grandma in Omaha. Each time, the kids favorite things have been the art and craft projects. Sometimes they have bird house and other wood crafts, other time the kids are just banging nails, wood, and wires together. The kids have a ton of freedom to do what they want. Somehow they manage to conduct messy... More

I took my son here due to the weather was chilly and needed to get him out of the house. It was the perfect place for a little kid to run, play, and learn all while meeting other kids. My son is almost two but everything there seemed safe for all ages. I would recommend this place to everyone who... More

We went there for our granddaughter's 3rd birthday. Room was spacious, staff very friendly and the museum is one of the best we had been to. They have a lot for children of all ages to do. So many things were hands on! Loved it.

Great place to take the kids. I remember going here as a kid and still a great place. They do a great job changing the attractions around. Kids are able to get tons of exercise.

Our family loves the omaha children's museum. It is pricey, as adults have to pay to be there too, but it's worth it. It's all interactive and quite fun. It tires out the kids, (and husbands), too!
