Omaha Children's Museum


Saturday, Sept. 14

9 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Celebrate the tinkerer spirit at our annual Tinkerfest! Meet makers, tinkerers, DIYers, & inventors who will share their excitement with young and old. Each table at Tinkerfest will feature something hands-on to engage children, from a toy take-apart to building board games and video games, pottery, creating upcycled crafts and working with textiles. Activities will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., while supplies last.

Featured activities:

- Car take-apart thanks to Baxter Omaha, Metropolitan Community College, Quality Auto Repair & Towing Inc, and Titan Automotive Coatings  

- Help build a Rube Goldberg machine

Don't forget to stop by our Tinker Lab and create something that day! Tinkerfest is included with regular museum admission.

call for makers!
