Small and tasteful
May 2021
Only the second floor was open for art. Masks are required. This is a small, clean and tasteful museum with an eclectic assortment of art. It's worth a stop.

Wonderful regional art collection
Mar 2021
Very eclectic collection of art focused on Nebraska artists, or artists with a Nebraska connection and/or art featuring Nebraska life and environs. Something for everyone here: ceramics, photography, sculpture and painting. Lovely setting in a Neo-classical building. Very nice gift shop as well. Highly recommend.

Art Enthusist retreat and family friendly
Sep 2019
MONA is one of the most popular places to visit in Nebraska for Art displays of all sorts. You need to check with the Museum to see what is on display at various times of the year. Great Nebraska and National artist are featured and history is great.
They often have activities for the kids and it is located in the original Post Office which has great architectural features.
If you love art you'll enjoy MONA!

Always a good collection
Aug 2019
It's an annual visit, and every year, more interesting sculptures and paintings are on display. The signage is exceptionally well done, explaining the artist's connection to Nebraska. Outside is a small sculpture garden; worth seeing also.

Nice and free
Aug 2019
The museum has a small but nice collection of art works. It took us about 30 minutes to go around it. It's also located in a nice area, the historical district of Kearney.
Free admission.

Nice little museum
Jul 2019 • Couples
We looked through this place and were pleasantly surprised at their art collection, which was heavy on Western and Indian art (some of which was a little depressing as some Natives are having/have had a rough time in life). The building is an American Classic of marble, stone, and is quite pretty. Glad they saved it. Good quick stop.

Wonderful!

It’s a smallish museum, however a delight. Beautifully lit, very nice building with some lovely art. Gift shop was especially nice with pottery, glassware and unique gifts. Bonus was the 3 posters you could take home. And it’s a free will donation to enter.

Worth Going

I was in Kearney for the crane migration but the weather wasn't great so I decided to give this museum a try. It was a wonderful art museum. I'm not sure if the exhibits rotate but the ones there when I was visiting were all excellent. They had one gallery with beautiful art quilts and another with wonderful photographic portraits of cranes. They also had a nice little gift shop where I picked up a few lovely pieces from a local artist. I was really glad the bad weather got me inside this great little museum.
