Although the living history village wasn't 'peopled' till May, the artifacts in the museum building were varied and diverse. The grounds are very nice. I'd love to come and see the village in full swing! Don't miss the house Henry Fonda was born in, and the replica Pawnee mound home.

We visited the Stuhr Museum today, and it was a pretty disappointing experience. The outdoor buildings (the Railroad Village) are closed until May 1st, and the main building is closed for renovations until July of 2015. There is only one building, the Fonner Rotunda, with Native American and Old West artifacts, that is open. Some of those artifacts are interesting,... More

We love this living history museum. they offer classes for kids in classes around the state and they are more than happy to include homeschoolers. The staff dress in period costumes and play the roles well.

The Stuhr Museum is a great place to get a feel for life on the great plains in the 1880's and 1890's. Lots of buildings and the old town give a great atmosphere and chance to learn and experience a time that is incredibly important to Nebraska.

A nice place to visit once, however they were not very friendly. My daughter's class was going and my wife was going to join my daughter which the school told her would be fine. Once my wife arrived they refused to let my wife in and claimed they were full capacity (which was not true). My daughter's teacher asked why... More

this place is about early prairie history. it depicts the life on the plains. they have, really put a lot into getting some historic buildings on this site, from, mostly the 1800's. they do have a gift shop here, too.
