FAQs

What requirements do you have surrounding COVID-19 health and safety practices?

In accordance with the mask mandate put in place by the Lincoln Lancaster County Health Department and Mayor Leirion Gaylord Baird, the Lincoln Children's Museum requires masks to be appropriately worn by all visitors 5 years of age and over while in the Museum and when you are in your reserved party room. 

Each of your guests need to complete our Waiver of Play.  Children need to have the waiver filled out by a legal guardian.  Adults are also required to submit a completed waiver.

No outside items, other than birthday gifts and a dessert are allowed into the Museum during this time.


Can I come in and bring guests without reserving a party room?

You can come in and pay regular admission for your guests, but we do not have an area that you can be in for cake and presents.


Can my guests park in the parking lot on the side of your building?

Our parking lot is first-come, first-served.  If when they arrive and a spot is open - Yay! If they arrive and there are no open spots, they will need to head to a parking meter or downtown garage.  More parking information can be found here
 

What happens if I go over the 24 limit for the Deluxe Party?

Unfortunately, due to the Directed Health Measure, you must confirm you will only have up to 24 guests (adults and children) for a Deluxe Party.  If you know you will end up with over 24 guests, you will need to re-book your party as an Ultimate Party that allows up to 50 people to attend.
 

Can I store items at the Welcome Desk until we are ready to leave?

No items can be stored at the Museum at this time. 
 

Can I leave our items in the party rooms when they kids go out to play?

If it is within your 90 minute time-frame in the room, you are welcome to store your items there. If it is before or after your party, we will not be able to store the items for you.
 

Can I take the decorations and/or costumes home?

No, all decorations and costumes are property of the Lincoln Children’s Museum and have to stay in the designated party room.
 

Can you make an announcement for me at a certain time?

Yes, we will confirm a time for your overhead announcement during the party booking process.  We'll make sure it's during your party's playtime so it can be heard by your party guests.
 

Is my deposit refundable if a date change or cancellation is needed?

Deposits are non-refundable as we use them to pre-order and purchase supplies to accommodate your party.  However; if plans change on your side we are happy to help you find a date to reschedule to and can even hold your deposit for up to one year from the date of your initial transaction.
