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 are areas with lots of activities for kids up to about age 6. The only issue is there are several levels and if you have a fast kid it can be easy to lose them!
