All children deserve the chance play in a safe, friendly environment with their parents, siblings and other children. Shining Star is a free and exclusive event, supported by May Flanagan Foundation, developed to serve families with children whose health has been compromised by a medical condition, specialized surgical procedures or medical treatments. This special event is closed to the general public to allow families who otherwise may not be able to visit the Museum an opportunity to enjoy a special night together away from the home or hospital.

Join us for four weeks of live music performances featuring popular children's bands from across the country, including two of Lincoln's in-demand bands: The String Beans and The Mighty Magic Pants! This FREE, family concert series takes place Thursday evenings in June and is held outdoors on the Museum Plaza. The evening begins at 5 p.m. with the KFRX pre-concert show and pizza sales. At 6 p.m., a different musical performer takes the stage for nearly an hour of live music. The event is presented as a way to give back to the community while introducing children to different styles of music to develop a sense of music appreciation.
