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.

We enjoyed the Stuhr, especially the Wings over the Platte art show and sale. The permanent exhibits are well crafted and of broad interest. Nice gift shop and beautiful building.

Definitely a great place to visit with the family. Our grandchildren are young, but like the rail town, the blacksmith, the candy shop and more. We also did the inside displays which they liked. Historically accurate, interesting, and worth a couple of hours.

It depends. This Museum consists of several parts. So if you want to see it all, I would definitely plan to be there from open to close. They're open from 9-5 Monday through Saturday. Outbuildings open a bit later, but you... More
