BackgroundOne of the great things about Omaha Children’s Museum is its ability to create change. Whether inside the museum walls or out in the community, OCM truly believes they can impact the youth in the metro area and beyond through fun and educational family programming that stimulates growth and development. The talented and creative staff members, combined with generous support from the Omaha community, is what makes Omaha Children’s Museum a unique place to visit for young children.
Brag LinesIn 2017, Omaha Children’s Museum had a record-breaking year with nearly 325,000 visitors to the museum, making OCM the most-visited museum in Nebraska. The museum served nearly 800 summer campers and nearly 40,000 students through outreach programs and field trips. In summer 2016, the museum began a three-year partnership with the Nebraska State Fair to bring an educational and fun exhibit to the fair each year. OCM staff served as consultants for the Nebraska 150 Celebration’s Mobile Children’s Museum, which launched its six-month, statewide tour from the museum in April 2017. In October 2017, the museum launched its first national tour, Forever Forest. This will tour for 10 years, stopping at science centers, children’s museums, and other venues.
Pay it ForwardThe best way to support Omaha Children’s Museum is by walking through the doors and seeing the many ways that children can learn through play. Other ways to support the museum are through the purchase of an annual membership, volunteering, or making a financial contribution. Donations can also be made to the Welcome Fund, a donor-funded subsidized membership for families who otherwise could not afford to visit the museum.
