Yes, the planetarium is great...not the highly sophisticated venue as in major cities, but cool in any respect. I got to know the director and he is competent and knowledgeable. Parking can be a challenge, but my wife and I took a hotel shuttle.

My kids loved this museum. The mammoth skeletons when you first enter are very cool. My son loved the dinosaur exhibit. Really cool place to take the kids.

We had a fun stop here. This is a neat family place. The gift shop is great. They even do birthday parties there. Worth the six dollars to get in.

The museum is not big, just a couple of floors and provides a good overview of some of the history of Nebraska. Enjoy some of the old photos and artifacts. Only need to spend 60-90 minutes to see it.

We really enjoyed our short trip to Lincoln. The highlight was the visit to the Morrill Museum at the University of Nebraska. Wonderful exhibitions of prehistoric animals, mostly from Nebraska; did you know that camels are indigenous to America? The center attraction is the one...More

Excellent museum. We spent about two hours and could have stayed longer. The staff was very helpful and I would consider this a "must see" in Lincoln.
