Program 1

Power of Play Program

The Lincoln Children?s Museum strives to be an educational and social resource for families with children from birth to age 10. The Museum offers a wide variety of early-childhood programming, family-centered events and camps that engage children in the process of learning through self-discovery. In order to ensure that every child has the opportunity to experience the benefits of the power of play, the donor-funded Have a Heart program offers families access to the Museum regardless of their financial situation.
