I've been going here since I was a kid. I'm a museum geek and enjoy spending time in them. Mammoth bones, sloth bones, and information about how the area has change is exceptional.

A great place to spend an afternoon. Standing by the skeleton of a prehistoric elephant or hanging out with some really strange creatures can really stir your imagination.

My children and I love Morill Hall! Mammoths, saber toothed tigers, and many other extinct animals once roamed Nebraska. Wonderful site, and a visit can be 30 minutes, up to several hours, depending on your interest.

I was taking a walking tour of the university and stumbled across the State Museum. It modestly-sized but has a large and interesting exhibit of mastodons, mammoths, and related mammals. There were also some other interesting rotating exhibits. At $6 it was a bargain. It...More
