OPENING THIS NOVEMBER...
Visit the Nature Center this fall to explore the forest like never before. Climb, crawl and slide on tree tops, become a conductor for a day and work a kid-sized replica of a Union Pacific engine, then work with your friends to build a house as you learn about the many things wood is used for!
Forever Forest is an immersive exhibit that teaches families how their everyday lives are connected to forests through the ways they live, work and play. Families will enjoy hands-on activities focused on forest life and sustainable harvesting.
Forever Forest is an exhibit produced by Omaha Children’s Museum.
Check back soon for exhibit dates, ticket information, and more!
EXPLORE THE FOREST
Play the role of a conductor, yard worker or warehouse manager as you figure out how to load and unload a train full of lumber and surprising tree products such as chocolate, gum, and ping pong balls.
TREE TOP CLIMBER
Explore a forest and its creatures by climbing, crawling and sliding through logs and tree limbs.
Cooperate to finish building a house while learning how wood is used for trim, flooring, walls and more. Investigate toys, musical instruments, sports equipment, medicine, food and fabric made from tree components.
Understand the steps of the forestry process by manipulating trains, trucks, boats, trees, and logs to move them from the forest to sawmill, to lumberyard, and eventually a home.
