Buffalo Bill's Seal of Approval

North Platte Area Children’s Museum

Children’s Museum COVID-19 Statement:

The North Platte Area Children’s Museum will be closed in accordance with North Platte Public School closures, starting Monday March 16th. We feel it is our responsibility to do our part to lessen the spread of this pandemic and to protect our guests, staff and larger community. We thank you for understanding and look forward to welcoming you again soon.


The North Platte Area Children’s Museum gets Buffalo Bill’s Buffalo of Approval. It’s simple to see why, there’s a bunch of great activities that will fire any kid’s imagination.

For the medically inclined there’s a doctor’s office, complete with masks, gowns, gloves, and a super-sized operation game.

If they’re interested in the heritage of the heartland there’s an interactive farming exhibit complete with a tractor to play in and a market for when they bring the harvest in.

For the more adventurous child they can sail the seas on our giant pirate ship, as they find their way to plunder and buried treasure.

Be the engineer and take the trains through the tracks at our Union Pacific railroad exhibit.

Combine all that with a dress-up area, a pizza parlor, a puppet theatre and much more and it’s simple to see why kids have a great time at the North Platte area Children’s museum. Kids having a great time, it’s why the North Platte Area Children’s Museum gets Buffalo Bill’s coveted Buffalo of Approval.
