I felt as if we could’ve walked around for days! There were so many exhibits (earth lodge, historic communities, and an old train!) that it would’ve taken us several hours to leisurely explore our surroundings. It’s very peaceful but also great for inquisitive kids.

We made the 90-mike trek from Lincoln and that time could not have been better spent. The actual museum building was simple but well done and quite informative. The expansive grounds are well-maintained on an ideal piece of property. Railroad town was much more than...More

Interesting place to visit and see artisans at work. The museum is a work of art itself. There’s also Henry Fonda’s birthplace/Home at this museum site

The main center is a beautiful building with simple, but well done displays. The rotunda is OK, interesting items. The grounds are huge, plan on driving to different sites. Almost too far apart. Nice staff.

The primary building is beautiful all by itself. The permanent collection on the top floor is a nice collection of Nebraska's past, almost laid out in a time line manner. We had a very good time looking at everything. The primary floor held art created...More

Wonderful building and architecture. Local artist exhibit very interesting. Nice collection of local historical items. We didn’t visit pioneer village due to time constraints. Next time.

We visited the Stuhr Museum for the Christmas Tree exhibit. We were pleasantly surprised at the quantity and quality of trees. It was a very pleasant experience, one I would highly recommend to enhance your enjoyment of the holiday season.
