Being Omaha Family Dining Week, it’s timely to tell you all about the special exhibit that just opened at Omaha Children’s Museum: “Once Upon a Farm.”
Guess who grows all that good food?
This interactive exhibit tells kids how the food on the table got there, and the important role agriculture plays in their everyday lives.
Some of the cool features:
Slide behind the seat of a combine to harvest your crops
Wheel around a pedal track maze and fill up at the ethanol station
Plant and irrigate your crops in the miniature planting station
Learn about water and irrigation while playing under the kid-sized center pivot
Create your own beef dishes in the Cow Cafe
Separate and sort grain into large grain bins
Crawl through a two-story worm wall
Care for livestock
Hop aboard the Ag Express Train (must purchase tickets)
Broadcast your own forecast at the weather station
