This was a very enjoyable stop on our way to Illinois. The railroad town was very original. We especially liked the blacksmith!!

We stopped here on our ride through Nebraska. Our three kids as well as ourselves really enjoyed this. You could make a day of this. We thought it was reasonably priced as well as educational. It really felt like stepping back in time and the staff was friendly and helpful.

If you enjoy history, you will enjoy this stop. The living museum of the railroad town was top notch. The interpreters were knowledgeable and very wiling to answer all of our questions. We arrived at 4 PM, not knowing what to expect. The greeters were all extremely friendly and helpful.Since the museum closes at 5 PM, they suggested where we... More

This place is so neat. There is so much to learn and experience. The people walking around dressed in the correct attire for that era. Lots of activities going on. Lots of fun!

The main museum is undergoing renovations, but Railroad town is always great. The wonderful homes (Including Henry Fondas' childhood home), the schoolhouse, church, and many other buildings. So many artifacts.

Start your journey in the main building across the bridge over the canal. Continue on to the many inside and outside buildings and exhibits. This is definitely a spot you will want to check out.

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.
