education

beyond exhibits

 Looking to engage a young mind and help them unlock the joy of learning? At the Museum, Learn supports children being able to cognitively understand something they were unfamiliar with before through new educational opportunities.

lcm little learners

Little Learners is a weekly education program, with specific program themes lasting six weeks long, valuing the whole child to support healthy bodies and minds.

Each one hour session rooted in play showcases music, art and creativity, along with social interaction for young children and time for play in exhibits — all while the Museum is closed to the public!  These educator-led sessions are an opportunity to strengthen each little one’s fine and gross motor skills as well as expose them to new experiences with children similar in age. Sample experiences include cooking, yoga, and dance.

 

kindergarten ready

Do you have a little one who’s worked so hard to learn pre-k skills this year?!  Keep them Kindergarten Ready @ LCM!
This planned playtime can be completed in one visit and provides smiles, giggles, and laughs to not only the student, but also their family and friends!

field trips

Lincoln Children’s Museum is a fun and educational destination for field trips at any time of the year! Public and private schools, homeschools and licensed childcare programs may take advantage of the Museum’s field trip program.

Field trips last two-hours with the opportunity to extend this time and reserve a space for lunch.

camps

Camps at the Lincoln Children’s Museum are not only a great value and conveniently located for many parents in Downtown Lincoln, but they provide quality STEAM-based programming. While children have access to the 23,000+ sq. ft of exhibit space throughout the day, most of camp is spent in our top-secret camp PLAY space, designed just for making messes and lasting memories.

offsite programs

Let your class experience the power of hands-on play with the Lincoln Children’s Museum! Our education team leads learning opportunities throughout the community with hands-on interactive activities designed to expand brains and ignite the sense of wonder. Outreach and education activities can include after school programs, PLC days, or even visits to childcare programs.
