Beautiful museum - interesting exhibits.

I have wanted to see this museum for many years. I was impressed with the depth of the collection. The museum is in the old library building and is wonderfully restored. Artists from all over Nebraska are represented. There was an impressive modern multi-media event having focus on my visit. I recommend the museum for a bit of culture for... More

This is a treasure hidden in Kearney. Yes, they advertise, but to truly appreciate the high quality, Nebraska art, the MONA is worth a visit!!

For a city the size of Kearney, I was surprise by the size of the collection, and the quality and variety of the artworks they have collected. If you are a fan of architecture, you may want to stop there just for the building. It's well curated and well maintained. It took us about 2 hours to enjoy this place.

So nice to see a museum that features Nebraska artists. The gift shop is first class. It has many nice handmade items from artists to buy. The location is nice and convenient to other awesome downtown shopping.

For all of us who ever struggled through English class in high school it is worth stopping by MONA just to take your picture with a statue honoring the inventor of Cliff's notes! Who knew it was a real person and from Nebraska no less. The museum itself is very cool, budget yourself an hour or two for a nice... More

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
