game day play dates are back!

Kids ages 5-12 “score” an awesome time and you run away with a “win” in the game of best-adult-ever!

Treat your littles to a tailgate all their own when you register for an LCM Game Day Play Date (GDPD). Offered during most Husker home football games, these GDPDs provide football-themed games and crafts, time “running plays” among museum exhibits, and a mid-game snack to keep all pint-sized players fueled for fun!

Simply reserve your spot(s), drop your little football fanatics off at the listed time, and pick them up after cheering the Huskers to a W!

register now for day camps!

Did you know we offer camps on days when Lincoln Public Schools are not in session?

 

With different themes and S.T.E.A.M.-inspired activities to match, each camp is guaranteed to be a full day of play!

From treetops to airplane runways, to lunar landscapes, there is no destination too high or too far that can’t be reached through the power of play! The Lincoln Children’s Museum provides limitless possibilities to children of all ages in 23,000 sq. ft of exhibits.
