This is a nice little museum with a variety of well done displays though don't expect polished and professional. One of North Platte's claims to fame was the canteen that was run mainly by local women during WWII to provide refreshments to the passing trains...More
One of the best museums of the early days on the Northern Plains. Lot's of fun things to see inside and out. Took me back to my childhood days on a farm in Northern South Dakota. Definitely recommend a visit!
We decided to visit this museum based on the recommendation of a guide at the Union Pacific Bailey Yard.
The museum provided an opportunity to see life as it was many years ago. There were numerous older buildings, including houses, a barn, a church, an...More
I came to learn more about the North Platte Canteen. Enjoyed the photos, artifacts, writings, and video about an amazing story from WWII. If you don't know the story, I encourage you to read "Once Upon a Town" and be inspired by such generosity and...More

I visited the Lincoln Co. Historical Museum on a '3 for 1' price ticket that allowed a person to visit three attractions for $10 (we visited the Buffalo Bill Ranch first and that is where I purchased my ticket, though you can also purchase the same 3 for 1 ticket at the Lincoln Co. museum or the Golden Spike tower too). For the $10, you get to visit the Buffalo Bill Ranch, the Golden Spike Tower, and the Lincoln Co. museum). I'm not sure how much the museum admission fee is alone. Hope that helps!
