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.

My grand son's were with me for a couple days, We decided that a visit to the Stuhr Museum would be a great place for them to see the history and enjoy the day. They dressed in period clothing, looked at all the buildings and school house and church. the were very impressed.

Outside houses and buildings, people in period dressed clothing that act like they live in the time , fantastic celebrations, a new head person who is helping it out a ton! Newly remodled amazingness. I have been going here since I was a baby. This place is neat and needs more recognition among young and old! The 4th of July... More

The Stuhr Museum has a little something to offer for everyone. They have a special kids section in the main building where little ones can pretend to live in days past. The museum has many displays that give you an eye opening look of days gone by....what instruments doctors used, what firefighters looked like with their horse drawn wagons, a... More

This place is great. I went with a group of mostly preschool and toddler kids, and they still seemed to enjoy it. I'd guess it would be the most fun for elementary age kids. If you go with little people, there is a play house in the back yard of one of the big houses. It has toys to pretend... More

I had wanted to stop here because I saw this museum listed in a magazine article as being one of the 10 best Old West museums in the US. Since they have limited hours of full operation (just in the summer) I finally got the chance to stop. While the museum and buildings are interesting I didn't think they warranted... More

Stuhr Prairie Museum has a variety of buildings to tour. There is the main building with Railroad memorabilia and other antiques. There is a building with a nice collection of cowboy and Indian artifacts. Then there is the actual village itself with homes and businesses like they would have been in the late 1800's- early 1900's. They have people who... More

We've been to many historical museums and this was a nice one but same type of buildings, objects, information that we've seen before. The museum and outside buildings are laid out nicely but several of them were closed or not open to visitors (about 1/4) when we came on a Sunday - because of that I think it's overpriced. Also...

This is a large complex of multiple buildings and gardens on the southwest edge of Grand Island. The main building is a modern, marble building surrounded by a circular pond, almost like a moat. It is a memorial to the Stuhr family that endowed the museum. That main building contained many artifacts of life in Grand Island since its founding.... More
