About Us Discovering, together.

Welcome to Kiewit Luminarium, a place for people of all ages, identities, and backgrounds to explore astonishing phenomena at the intersection of science, art, and human perception.

A place for curious humans

Opening on Omaha’s reimagined RiverFront in April 2023, Kiewit Luminarium will rekindle your curiosity and change the way you see the world. With more than 100 interactive exhibits and a kaleidoscope of engaging programs, you’ll want to visit again and again. Together we are building a future for Omaha and the region where everyone will have the opportunity to dream, play, wonder, experiment, and consider something new.
