The main center is a beautiful building with simple, but well done displays. The rotunda is OK, interesting items. The grounds are huge, plan on driving to different sites. Almost too far apart. Nice staff.

The primary building is beautiful all by itself. The permanent collection on the top floor is a nice collection of Nebraska's past, almost laid out in a time line manner. We had a very good time looking at everything. The primary floor held art created...More

Wonderful building and architecture. Local artist exhibit very interesting. Nice collection of local historical items. We didn’t visit pioneer village due to time constraints. Next time.

We visited the Stuhr Museum for the Christmas Tree exhibit. We were pleasantly surprised at the quantity and quality of trees. It was a very pleasant experience, one I would highly recommend to enhance your enjoyment of the holiday season.

A rather large open-air museum with a lot of buildings to wander through. We have been to a lot of these places, but this one had some unique exhibits - such as a vet's operating room for horses. Worth 3 or so hours of your...More

You could spend a whole day in railroad town and another in main building, the farmstead, and still have more to see. The grandchildren loved the Blacksmith and the Tinsmith. They were very interactive with the children.

This is a huge open air museum with air conditioned "museums" within. A great place for families to visit together. I loved the old church and schoolhouse.
