Grand Island History

Well worth your time to visit. Exhibits are well done and documented. Great for just an out door experience and walk.

This is a great, and inexpensive place to take your family for a day of old time fun. Railroad town has a lot of attractions to see. There are also a lot of other buildings to explore. The main building was just updated and has a nice atmosphere to it. Be sure to bring cash for the general store.

I recently attended a meeting at the main building. It is very beautiful and well maintained. Not a huge meeting room but for less than 35 people works perfectly.

I had heard of Tom Mangelson from my travels in Africa, so I was excited to see his large scale work in a gallery. Pretty impressive. We also enjoyed the Wings over the Platte art exhibition especially Doug Steinke and Rick Rasmussen. The artifacts of the prairie were interesting but also reading about the pioneers stories - especially sad how... More

The Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer has an excellent exhibit of artifacts from the days pioneers first crossed the prairie, but the Tom Mangelson photos were the star. Fabulous!

OK....best part were the restored houses section....the rest was only average in interest. The large, main building was ok, the building across the driveway was dimly lit.....too dimly lit, had strange oder.

Drove to Grand Island without any plan, but finally decided to visit here. I only saw the museum building on the traveling guide, so I was surprised that they had a railroad town here. I only spent a little bit time in the museum since I saw quite a lot of similar things in other museums before. I enjoyed walking... More

The building itself and the art work was interesting...I am not interested in the historical displays, but it may be the place for you.

We're local, and probably don't appreciate this treasure as much as we should, so we planned a visit. The museum had lots of interesting exhibits of prairie life. Makes one appreciate what the early settlers went through. Beautiful quilts. Enjoyed walking through the businesses and homes of Railroad Town. And the grounds are just beautiful!
