special needs

 Lincoln Children’s Museum is a place for every child to experience the power of play. Some kids may need modifications to have their best day here, and we want to provide whatever tools we can. Sensory kits are available at the welcome desk, and a social story is available for use before you visit, plus we host a variety of special programs providing specific accommodation.
