They have store fronts inside the building where you can walk down a board walk and look into stores of the past. A great place to spend an afternoon

Lots of fun activities for all ages and a staff who loves what they do. I have hosted family reunion activities at the Plainsman Museum a couple of times and all totally enjoyed our time there.

As a person who loves to research the area I grew up in, this museum is great! It has a lot of history of the plains with exhibits that are specific to Aurora and the surrounding communities. Great asset to Aurora.

I spent over 2 hours here and was impressed with all the items on display for this particular part of the country. I learned about how the area was settled, who these people were and where they came from. In addition to the main building there is a huge building out back with old "things" (tractors, buggies, cars, etc), a school house and blacksmith's shop. I highly recommend it for people who are interested in educating their children. The fee is nominal for what you experience.

We were looking at a National Geo Atlas attempting to find an interesting attraction on I80 from Omaha to WY to break up the long straight road! There in small red print was Plainsman Museum. We decided to stop and were really pleased to find a quality historical museum with knowledgeable volunteers and excellent exhibits. My husband swears it had better exhibits than some we have seen at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum! So, if you are passing thru Aurora NE, stop and see this. You will not be disappointed.
