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.

A great little art museum focusing on Nebraska art, that is art done by people with significant connections to Nebraska or art done about Nebraska. When we visited there were several nice exhibitions, though much of the regular collection was being rearranged. This is the type of museum without a single "must see" piece but a place that you can... More

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

This is not a large art museum, but has a good variety of displays, a friendly staff, and is very well maintained
