Things to Do

Lincoln Children’s Museum

The Lincoln Children’s Museum is devoted to inspiring curiosity and creativity for every child who visits. At the Lincoln Children’s Museum, children can pretend to anchor a local news show inside the Johnny Carson Theater or work at a pretend post office. They can pretend to be firefighters or just dance, play, create, and sing.

Operating on three floors with 23,300 square feet of hands-on exhibits, the museum offers imaginative programs that allows them to discover the adventure of learning through play just over a 15-minute drive from the Abbott Sports Complex. Play is how kids learn to work with others and engage a sense of creativity. This museum provides opportunities for youngsters to experience the power of play while learning more about the world they live in. 1420 P St, Lincoln, NE 68508

Challenge everybody to a race to the finish line in the sporty go-karts. If they have any energy left, have ’em take a crack at a fastball in the batting cages, or knock golf balls through 18 holes of mini golf.
