I love to take the kids here. My toddler enjoys exploring the paths and sandboxes and my 12 year old loves the classes and exhibits and it's small enough that she can venture on her own on uncrowded days. All of the animals seem in excellent health and are very well cared for. The staff is always great, and so are the zoo crew kids that help out with pony rides and the such. Every time I go we learn something new so it's always a great experience.

The first time we visited the Lincoln Children's Museum was on their Super Hero Day. The place was overly crowded for that reason but the museum seemed neat enough we became members that day. Fast forward one week. We attended the museum and not only did the kids have a blast but I did as well. There are so many cool toys to play with.... I mean for the kids to play with.

This place was a great place to be yesterday, considering the timing of the debt deal. The Sunken Gardens were created back during the Depression. The government, under FDR, pledged tons of money to the people of the United States in the form of wages through public works projects. Within the area, they rounded up 200 men who were employed to work on dozens of projects, one of which included the Sunken Gardens.
