What We Do

Since its inception in 1976, Omaha Children's Museum has been a special place where children can challenge themselves, discover how the world works and learn through play. It is Omaha’s primary participatory museum and provides a variety of hands-on exhibits, workshops, programs, presentations and special events that put children in touch with their ever-changing world.

Educational programming is an area of strength for Omaha Children’s Museum. Special offerings such as focus field trips, summer camps, workshops, presentations, and birthday parties help round out the experience for young visitors.

The imaginative environment at Omaha Children's Museum reaches beyond home and school experiences, nurturing growth and development as young children and their adults explore the world together.
