Can I use my Omaha Children’s Museum Family Membership to get reciprocal discounted admission to Lincoln Children’s Museum?
play_circle_filled

Different memberships provide different discounts. However, Family Memberships do not provide reciprocal discounted admission to Lincoln Children's Museum. Family Memberships provide reciprocal discounted admission to science centers that belong to the Association of Science and Technology Centers, or ASTC. Lincoln Children's Museum is not part of ASTC.

Patron Memberships do provide reciprocal discounted admission to Lincoln Children's Museum. Patron Memberships are just like Family Memberships with the same benefits, but they also include an additional two guests with each visit (cardholder must be present) and the discounted admission to children’s museums through the ACM Reciprocal Network.

Can I transfer my membership to another family?
play_circle_filled

No. Omaha Children's Museum memberships are non-transferable and non-refundable.
