Omaha Children’s Museum Family Membership Perks

Updated: April 2, 2018. Full disclosure, I started working at Omaha Children’s Museum after this post was written. 

Ever since Farley was a roaming toddler, we’ve had a family membership to the Omaha Children’s Museum.

He could play, he could create, he could learn. And for exhausted parents, it guaranteed a tired kid at the end of the day.

When Mooch came along, it became her playground too.

Mooch has loved shopping at the museum's grocery store since a young age.

I’ve often written about our adventures there, checking out the newest exhibits, enjoying the special events that we could attend for FREE with our membership (like themed nights or seasonal exhibits like the one opening soon – Santa’s Magic).


Our loyalty to the museum through annual membership and frequent pictures shared from our visits helped secure a partnership between me as a writer and the museum as a major attraction in Omaha.

Part of that awesome partnership is a complimentary membership for my family. I would’ve renewed ours anyway and continued to tell you all about our adventures there, but this way I can help the museum out in areas they need (beyond just some mom raving about how awesome everything in general is).


One thing I haven’t written about much is all the perks we get with our family membership to the Omaha Children’s Museum. It goes beyond unlimited, FREE admission to the museum.

I've taken my kids to the Lincoln Children's Museum, but never the Omaha one. I think it's about time I did. Sounds like a lot of fun exhibits!

My daughter LOVES science. I think she'd love to see the new additions to that area.
