We had a great time with our grandchildren. There was so much to do for a variety of ages ranging from 6 months to 9 yrs old.

This place was was very nice for many different age groups. From from a baby to 12 or more. Even the adults had a good time playing with the kids and learning from educational things. So much to do and see. Well thought out.

Lots of great exhibits that kept the kids entertained for hours. They especially loved the STEAM Cave, and Grace Hopper's Brain.

The day we picked was very busy, but we saw several staff members circling to keep up with all of the chaos. There were so many things to do that we didn't get through it all before our 4 and 6 year olds said they were wiped out, but everyone loved it. They had a few things for the little kids in different areas, which was nice. The bathrooms were constantly being cleaned. I recommend not taking a stroller or parking it if you can. Spent almost 4 hours there.

Always come to visit after Thanksgiving. We really enjoyed the quality staff. We even found a PhD candidate teaching the Astronaut Training upstairs. Our grand daughter loves the kitchen and store area. Good places for adults to sit while the kids play. Santa is the BEST. Holly the Elf does a great job as well.

We brought our four kids, whose ages range from 4 to 16, for a couple hours while we were in Omaha. The two younger ones had a blast; the older two were bored stiff. As a result, we cut our time there short. I should have paid closer attention to the age recommendations on the website (2 to 8 years).

My daughter had a great time and really loved the princess dance party. They offer so many diverse activities here and did a great job of making you feel like everything was clean and safe. We spent about 3 hours here which was enough time to see and play with everything.

Great place to take young kids. I would say kids over 10 will like it to much. It for kids 9 and under and they will love this place. Lots of interactive things for them to do. Highly recommend this place to entertain the little ones.

This place is a lot of fun for young kids and parents. So many different things to do and play with. I would recommend this place for anyone with kids ages 3 to 9. My 11 year old was a bit too old for most of the exhibits.
