This is an excellent museum with well maintained, beautiful and immaculate grounds and buildings. When we visited, despite being host to eclipse viewing for thousands of people the previous day, there wasn't a scrap of litter and apart from some additional picnic tables being removed,...More

The historic town buildings and period-costumed volunteers made for a fun afternoon. It was a warm August Saturday so luckily the general store was scooping up generous cheap cones of ice cream. I posted a letter at the little post office to one of the...More

Museum was very educational and interesting. I especially like walking around the grounds to see the old restored buildings. A great photo op. The museum itself was beautiful with many interesting exhibits.

Real life people with the ability to answer questions. Almost complete town to re enact the areas. Loved the railroad town and the ability to purchase things from that era. The blacksmith, sawmill and the tin maker all showed all it was done before modern...More

Perfect for watching the eclipse, and visiting the history of Nebraska. The courtesies extended to the 5,000 visitors that day were expansive, calm and very welcoming. The tour of the facility was wonderful. The building itself is really stunning. Grand Island should be proud to...More

This is like time traveling back over 150 years. The buildings look authentic and the volunteers have lots of information. Great place to visit.

This is an interesting museum with permanent exhibits and changing art exhibits. There was a variety of things including a covered wagon and things you would need on the prairie as a pioneer. There was a kids area where they could dress in vintage clothing,...More

Designated eclipse viewing site, this museum was free that day. Immense facility, with art museum, extensive railroad village, old machinery and auto museum, complete Lutheran church, and a Pawnee sod lodge. Allow at least 3-4 hours.

We were very impressed with all the history items at this museum.. The history buildings are very interesting. We enjoyed walking around to all of them. Our favorite was the Church and the Indian mound. It is worth a visit.

This is a great museum. The museum offers a living history program with many different building and reenactments. Their antique tractor facility is pack full with farm equipment, tractors and cars. Plan to spend a couple of hours to see everything
