It is set up in a great way with a variety of areas for rural life and also a huge collection of mounts from hunting around the world. The WWII collection is outstanding.

I'm originally from Holdrege, though left many years ago. Have stopped in a few times over the years when visiting family. This is a wonderful museum. The facility obviously receives a lot of community support and the community should be proud of this facility. Definitely...More

Large collection of items from native Americans, the pioneers, and this century. Two levels of exhibits that are all well displayed plus several other buildings including pioneer school and church. Includes display of mounted native animals. Military displays outstanding. Could have easily spent entire afternoon.
