Plan on spending a minimum of 2 to 3 hours here. There is plenty to see – great art, many artifacts, an outside exhibit with an old town and railroad, and then some. It's a very beautiful museum and very well cared for.

OUTSTANDING. EXCEPTIONAL. The Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer is even more than these two adjectives describe it. There is a nominal entrance fee. You begin at the main building where you can get oriented with maps and verbal information from volunteers and / or...More

Who would of thought a small town like Grand Island would have a hidden gem such as this. The art gallery is superb. Classy exhibits. Friendly staff. The railroad town educational. Worth the stop. I live in Lincoln and have driven by here several times...More

Great Nebraska museum with excellent tour guides. Railroad town has great replicas of how it was on the prairies back in old days. Great attraction for kids if you are in Grand Island area.

Love going here with grandkids or to attend any of the very many adult events they host. Railroad Town is great with its in costume workers - blacksmith, miliner, etc. In the main building they have beautiful works of art displayed.

Jerry - thank you for the kind words. We will be doing some work on the Fonner Rotunda in the next few months and hopefully that takes care of some of the "crowded" issues. Thanks, again, for your visit.
