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?
