About Us

In January of 2024, the Columbus Area Children’s Museum will swing its doors open for members and welcome the general public, February 22nd, 2024! This museum represents our community and the hardworking people who live and work in or near it! From a water table, modeled after the Loup River with a Loup Powerhouse model, to a modern farm, housing a veterinarian’s office, soil lab, animal wellness and nutrition, to the Kidstown, made up of businesses who call Columbus home, children birth – 10 years of age – and up, will learn something new each time they visit!

Columbus Area Children’s Museum (CACM) will be the first children’s museum in Northeast Nebraska!

The Columbus Area Children’s Museum (CACM) is a 501c(3) non-profit creating a safe indoor play space for children to learn & grow in Columbus, Nebraska! We are governed by a volunteer advisory board made up of passionate professionals from the region dedicated to shaping the next generation.

The CACM is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) – focused learning space with a variety of educational exhibits & programming helping to cultivate creativity & curiosity in our visitors. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon!
