A small, but full playground for kids. Many learning things, but mostly we take the grandkids, and a book, and stay until THEY are ready to go. No pressure on them to leave. They love it. Pleasant staff. Reasonable hours, yearly passes available.

A little expensive, but they accept other children's museum cards for a discount. Not real big in size, but had things Omaha didn't, so a nice change for our girls.

Every quarter they switch up their activities and overall theme of the interior space! Always something fun for just about any young kid that can crawl up to about age ten or eleven. Membership is reasonable if you go there often! If you go to...More

We visited this place and it was less than pare. I know it is costly to have an established such as this one. I highly suggest several fundraisers, to update and add. Great concept!

We were fortunate enough to get a family membership and have used it often this year! They do a great job filling the space with fun activities for the kids. Very Cool!!
