The Stuhr Museum is a great family attraction. The main building was closed for renovations but the Rail Road town was fantastic. The interpreters explain how life was in the 1890's. The blacksmith, tinsmith, wood shop, and hat shop were fantastic. The general mercantile and the saloon are fun shopping experiences. I highly recommend this attraction. Well worth the entrance...

Truly a trip back in time. We enjoyed our visit very much. The old railroad town was very interesting and a relaxing way to spend a summer day. Also, the Fonner collection of artifacts was very interesting. Too bad the main building was closed for renovations, though. All in all, an extremely worthwhile attraction.

My family, including several children, recently visited the Stuhr. We had a wonderful time there! We particularly enjoyed "Railroad Town", which is set up like an actual pioneer town. One can go inside the homes and shops of the era. People, dressed in clothes from the 1880"s, are at each location to explain the home or the shop. They were... More

I travel through Nebraska once a year and make a point to stop in Grand Island every time just to visit the Stuhr Museum. It's authentically historic, the interpretive staff dresses like the 1880s and they know their history. Its a wonderful experience!

This place has it all. A main building full of old west items. A rotunda building with lots of indian artifacts. An entire town for you to see, touch, explore, with character actors that love to answer your questions. This place is huge so plan on staying awhile to also go into home decorated in period fashion. Don't miss this!!!

This is a great place to visit often like we do; and a great place to take friends and families when they come to town! Stuhr has different programs and entertainment that are continually changing as each season changes. They have some programs that happen every year, from special summer classes for children of all ages, special programs like their... More
