Fun Things To Do In Omaha April 3-5

Happy early Easter to you all! I left Sunday events off the calendar since I figured you might just be busy with your own family activities.


Mad Scientist Night

Omaha children's museum

When: Friday, 5 to 8 p.m.

Where: Omaha Children’s Museum, 500 S. 20th St.

Why: Friday nights are my favorite time to visit the children’s museum, so if you haven’t gone yet, plan to do so. There are themed activities, plus just general run amok opportunities for kids. All activities are included with admission (save for that carousel that you know your kid wants to ride).

Who’d like this: Kids of all ages; kids who love science; parents who like their kids to be good and tired by bedtime

Tip: Visit the museum the next day for Nano Science Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.


Spring Celebration

When: Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Where: Gifford Farm Education Center, 700 Camp Gifford Road, Bellevue, Neb.

Why: You got your baby animals, you got your hayrack ride, and you got your Easter egg hunt and brunch (you’ll want to RSVP for those two things, 402-597-4920). It all sounds very wholesome and spring-y to me.

Who’d like this: Outdoorsy and/or farm types; animal lovers;


Easter Extravaganza

When: Saturday, 1 to 4 p.m

Where: Lauritzen Gardens, First and Bancroft streets

Why: You want to take the kids to a fun Easter event but you want to avoid the crowds that the free events attract.

Who’d like this: Kids of all ages (but really, kids old enough to participate in a egg hunt); outdoorsy types

Tip: There is an additional charge to of $3 per child to participate in the egg hunt and children’s crafts, on top of admission


This is the last weekend to catch “The Reluctant Dragon” at The Rose, as well! If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve seen the great big list of Easter events. Go check that it for Eastery- ideas. For other fun things to do in Omaha, visit Out With Sprout.
