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...
