Looking for a fun, family-friendly way to celebrate the New Year? Join Omaha Children's Museum for their New Year's Eve Bash to celebrate the last night of 2017.

This after-hours event will feature a dance party with DJ Shane, professional face painting, a balloon artist and access to the entire Children's Museum play areas. Kids can even enjoy free carousel and train rides.

Have you heard the news? Omaha Children's Museum has a new exhibit and it's amazing. Forever Forest is now open to the public and runs through April 15, 2018. This is their first traveling exhibit, which means portions of this exhibit designed by Omaha will be on display at other national children's museums. How cool is that?

The Forever Forest exhibit includes a fun treehouse with a slide, giant logs kids can climb, a playhouse, a campsite and a train. Kids can fish in an interactive display and even watch live termites under the microscope.

Throughout the exhibit, kids learn more about our natural resources, including sustainability, selective harvesting and every-day products we use that are made from trees. Read More and enter to win a family admission pass...
