Stopped by because we had just a little time - and knew it was free. Excellent exhibits, very well positioned. If we are in Kearney anytime soon, we'll stop in again to really spend some time looking at everything.

I've worked in Kearney for a few years and had never been to the museum and decided to make a stop the other day. It's very interesting and features Nebraska artists and Nebraska art. Very nice feature to have in central Nebraska.

A superb museum very well presented yet not so overwhelmingly large that you can't enjoy savoring the exhibits. These smaller museums give one time to absorb the aura of the pieces and what they are trying to tell you. As exhibits do change stop back to see whats new. Great place!

The facility itself is a work of art and the exhibits inside priceless. Admission is free. Located downtown in an area referred to as "The Bricks". Closed Mondays. Check days open and hours so you don't miss when in the area or passing by. Elevators easily accessible for all 3 floors. Great museum gift shop.

A great art museum filled with the works of Nebraska artists housed in a beautiful historic building-the post office at one time. Includes three floors of artwork, a sculpture garden a reference library, and a gift shop. Located on The Bricks in downtown Kearney. Free admission.

Came to see the marble and stone features of the building and was nice to see the museum open today so went in to cool off. Very nice inside and some interesting art. Wish we could of spent more time here but still had 500km to drive. Very nice and clean washrooms too especially the woman's.

The Museum of Nebraska Art is a diamond in the rough. The museum provides the visitor the ability to see the many talents of local Nebraska artists. The art collections are rotated out on a regular basis so each visit you are bound to see a whole new collection. Well worth the trip into the center of Kearney to see... More

The art work in this museum is most interesting. The artists all have connections with Nebraska. The variety of art and the changing displays makes you want to continue to return to see what new things are being displayed.
