The newly-refinished main building, the many buildings in the 1890s "railroad town" (open only May through August, unfortunately), and all the museum's other buildings and collections make this a place worth devoting a whole day to.

The Stuhr is a must stop Museum when in Grand Island, during the summer they have a living village, they are extremely accommodating to the needs of the tourist and locals alike. Great school program also. There is a lot to see, do and learn. Each staff member is very knowledgeable of the entire Museum.

This is a good museum for anyone who is interested in the history of the Great Plains and for educating/entertaining children. Go indoors for nice, well-curated exhibits focused on Native Americans and the pioneers. Outdoors, there is a large reconstructed pioneer village with houses, businesses, and other buildings, all filled with original furnishings, tools, machines, etc. so you can get... More

This is a good place to stop. The inside museum is displayed very well. Very roomy so that you don't feel overwhelmed. The outdoor railroad town was very nice but it was hot. I recommend going either early or late. It is worth your time to visit.

Only had a couple of hours here but well worth the price. Wish we had more time as didn't see enough in our short visit. Everyone was so friendly and informative.

If you are looking to step back into the past, The Stuhr Museum is the place for you. From Henry Fondas birth place to the newly remodeled Rotunda building, everything is top notch! Have been going here since the 70s. Always something new.

I would maybe recommend to not go in the middle of July in mid afternoon. It was very hot outside where some of the coolest living history exhibits were.

Best pioneer experience ever! Allow enough time, however, as there is so much to see and do. Interactive, knowledgeable docents, something for all ages. We were grandparents with two grandchildren and we loved the experience.

This is a visually beautiful museum designed by the same architect who did the Kennedy Auditorium for the Performing Arts in Washington DC. The entrance with the double staircase is impressive. I liked the way the displays were arranged with the philosophy that less is more. Each item was there for a reason and well explained. It was not overwhelming.... More
