We went by on a Sunday afternoon and Ross gave us a great tour of all the old buildings etc. It was great to see a young man volunteering on a Sunday afternoon to share the history of Kearney Nebraska and surrounding area

Very clean place. You can learn a lot about the early days of the west. My two grandkids loved the place.

We had a great visit on opening day. We took the tour and our guide was very good. She answered all of the questions that were asked. It is a very informative and fun place to visit.

The caboose and locomotive were very interesting. The guide took us around to all the buildings and told us all about their history. The blacksmith shop was also interesting. Very worthwhile for the price.

Jennifer guided us through the museum lasting an hour on board the caboose, locomotive, and the historic, prairie buildings such as an historic hotel, working blacksmith and livery stable. There's about 7-8 buildings total. Jennifer is very knowledgeable and friendly. We're glad we stopped by.

Nice stop. Able to climb into a steam train engine and caboose. Walking around, looking into 1 room schoolhouse, blacksmith shop, go into a tepee. Self guided tour is free.
