There is a small admission charge and a senior discount. There are several role playing things for kids to do like pretending to be a farmer, pizza maker, train engineer, medical person, etc. There is an upstairs and downstairs with several rooms of activities. The main entrance is wheelchair accessible and there is an accessible elevator as well. Some attractions... More

A grocery market, tractor and farm area, kitchen with a baby-doll high chair, well-equipped pretend pizza restaurant, and transportation room were just the beginning. We stumbled into a small dark room and thought a projector was throwing images to the floor. We soon realized that the floor was interactive! Games switched frequently, from math problems to soccer matches to bugs... More

My son loves this children's museum. He enjoys every trip and begs to go back; so I've bought a membership! They have interactive exhibits for kids to experience many fun activities! Kids can experience counting money in the market, stocking grocery shelves, surgery/human anatomy, an interactive/light-up dance floor, working in a pizza shop, building a train track, riding a manual...

Stopped here as part of the Nebraska passport program. A very nice little museum built in an old Carnegie library. There is a special area for the under three crowd.

Went here with grandchildren. They had a great time. Not expensive for all the different areas of fun. North Platte's surprise.

Even though we didn't have any kids with us when we visited, it looked like the kids that were there were having a good time. I saw lots of things that young kids would really enjoy and there is a separate area for babies/toddlers. The young lady at the front desk was really nice.

Whenever my grand kids are visiting they always ask to visit the children's museum! They would stay all day long if I would let them ! They have so many learning activities with a lot of creative play. I would highly recommend it for anyone with children from toddlers through elementary age children.

Went to the museum with grandsons and family. Grandsons were 8 months and 21 months. There is a room just for the little ones who aren't walking yet, where my youngest stayed with me and a variety of rooms for the others. Not overly crowded which was nice! One of the most interesting rooms was the "interactive" room where the... More

I visited the North Platte Children's museum in March of 2013. I was very impressed with the activities/toys but the floor was filthy. It was so dirty that my son's feet were black and I had to keep grabbing bits of green lint out of his hands before he ate them.
