I was able to visit the Lincoln Children's Museum with my grandson's Kindergarten class on their field trip recently. This is an amazing place for children and adults, too! This is a must see/do when in the Lincoln area.

There is street parking as well as a lot diagonal from the museum and the first hour is free! It is hardly ever full unless it is a football Saturday!
