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.

This relatively small natural history museum is a little treasure house of exhibits. I enjoyed it thoroughly, will return often as they change the exhibits and have special exhibits. It's a standout for kids!

Have taken many friends from different parts of the country and they are always impressed. There are things for all ages. If you take the time to read or listen to the presentations, you will be there a long time.

I have never got too excited about this place. However, my kids love going here. We have a membership and go at least once a month, more in the winter when the weather is bad outside. They have dinosaurs so what more do kids need.

Although this museum is a little dated in the way it displays the exhibits, they have done a great job in showcasing the material. The exhibit on elephants was very interesting and complete. I loved that they had a display on the native Indians of...More
