Carefree Kids

This special event is for children whose immune systems have been compromised. We’ve worked with the UNMC professionals to create an environment that is clean, safe and “carefree” so families can learn, play and enjoy time together. For this very special evening, the museum welcomes families free of charge with a doctor’s note.
