What a marvelous surprise it was to drive up to this beautiful stately building, enter it's cool marble and granite halls, there's no entry fee, and walk through its amazing collection of art. And the gift shop is sweet, too. On my visit the collection included works by luminaries such as Bierstadt, Audubon, Alfred Jacob Miller and Thomas Hart Benton... More

We aren't local to Nebraska but visit family often there and the Museum of Nebraska Art is one place we like to revisit when we are in Kearney. The quality of art is top-notch and we easily enjoy a couple of hours soaking up the art. It's easy to fall in love with Nebraska after seeing all the Nebraska artists... More

Recently we stopped to see the current Quilting Exhibit. My wife and her sister in law were very enthused with the quality of this showing. Every time we decide to stop and spend a little time at MONA it is such a pleasant and relaxing time. This is truly a gem of an attraction which is free to the public... More

This was a casual stop, but I think the museum does a good job of representing art from Nebraskans. Nice jewelry in giftshop.

The Museum of Nebraska Art is the state's official site for art produced by Nebraskans and others with ties to Nebraska. It is small, but first-rate. The collection includes some wonderful paintings, a gallery devoted to cranes (Kearney is on the flyway for the incredible annual migration of sandhill cranes), and a very interesting collection of prints by the German...

This is a really interetsing museum. It is THE art of Nebraska, which is interesting to find somewhere other than Omaha or Lincoln. It is well worth a visit whil in Central Nebraska.

A reviewer complained about the "rude staff" at MONA. What she failed to provide was her own rude behavior. She pushed her way past a tour group and demanded a ticket. When it was explained on 3 occasions that the museum was free, she left abruptly and complained loudly about being treated rudely. She was not even in the museum... More

While staying overnight in Kearney during our trek across Nebraska on I-80, we read about a special exhibit at their Art Museum so made a stop. It doesn't open until 11AM but since we were also touring another museum, it worked out. Otherwise, I wouldn't have hung around just for this museum. It's not a very large building so can't... More
