This museum is located in a non-descript, residential section of Sidney, Nebraska, and can be a little difficult to locate if you aren't travelling with a GPS. Any effort required to reach The Fort Sidney Museum is energy well spent. On Sundays, which happened to be our arrival day, the museum doesn't open until 1PM. We arrived just in time... More

Our Nebraska Passport Adventure concluded our Memorial Day Weekend with a visit to the Fort Sidney Museum. This was a truly interesting experience, with the community of Sidney donating many of the artifacts and antiques that are housed in this museum. There are some really unique pieces in this museum!!! We enjoyed our tour with our guide, who then walked... More

I was expecting at least some remnants of a fort, but no. An old house that was the post commanders home and some old military hardware, limited hours, on a small side street with a very small sign. Don't go out of your way.

This museum is not handicap accessible to upstairs. That being said, it is certainly worth the time. Full of history and the guide is simply amazing. She has a deep love and appreciation for the museum - and is quite knowledgable. You will need to make an appointment during fall/winter months.

This is a place to take children and grandchild so they get an understanding how their grandparents or even great-grandparents lived back in time. Christmas time is a fun time to go, since it is decorated nicely for people to visit. Must see when in SIdney.

If you want to learn some Western Nebraska history, this is a good place to do it. In an original building (Officer's Quarter's) of historic Fort Sidney, and includes a tour of the Commandant's Quarters, down the street. Lots of stuff about Fort Sidney, a small town view of the Edwardian period in Western Nebraska. If you're interested in that... More

The Museum is fun to tour and the history is interesting. Only drawback- It is not open at any particular set hours. You have to contact the Chamber to find out how to see ti. Additionally it's off the beaten path so many tourists wouldn't even know it's there. Worth the time it takes to investigate- Sidney has a rich... More

Another glimpse into the western frontier, Fort Sidney was an outpost that helped the westward movement. Great presentations and preservations.
