Grandson time

When we need to entertain our grandson, just turned 3, the Children's Museum is a great choice. Plenty of activities for all children.

Three words for this museum: Amazing...Amazing...and Amazing. We loved every inch of this museum. There were so many hands-on for kids to play. We have visited some museums offering similar activities and exhibits but none was as big and as diversified as Lincoln's Children Museum. It has 3 levels full of interactive exhibits and educational activities. We actually had to... More

We went here with our grandkids for grandson's 3rd birthday. The kids had a blast! Lots of interactive displays. Astronaut uniforms for the lunar lander exhibit, firefighter outfits, and a miniature grocery store with working checkouts. $9.50/person for everyone over 1yr. Great day had by all!

It's an ok place to take ur kids, there's different things for them to do and play with. But it's not that impressive. It's like an indoor playground.

We take our grandkids, age 5 and 8, to the Children's Museum about once a month. They enjoy the opportunity to play and learn. We enjoy having them run around rather than wanting to be entertained. When our out of town grandkids age 4 and 5 are visiting here, they love going to the children's museum too. No matter the... More

Watching all the children run here and there is heartwarming in itself. there is so much for them to do. Even if the kids have been there a dozen times they always love going back. They always have their favorite things to do!

The first time we went there, we were a little confused. We tried to keep up with them. Later we realized that this place is meant for you to just let them run. Other than making sure they picked up their own messes as they went, we only had to keep them in view and enjoy. This place looks small... More

There's lots for the kids to do. However, several stations need supplies replaced or upgraded. One area of concern was that my grandson was climbing inside the cuckoo clock display, the one with building blocks that goes up all three stories. I was waiting for him, and watching and the next thing I knew, he was coming down the main... More
