Sometimes when you least expect it you run across an excellent small town museum such as this one. While the museum is there to tell the history of Lincoln County Nebraska, it tells an overall great story of history. As a geek I really enjoyed the extensive display of early telephone equipment. The area telling the story of the WWII canteen located in North Platte was interesting as well. Besides the museum there are several outdoor buildings restored to their vintage look in a small village setting. Nearby to the Buffalo Bill Ranch and a highly recommended stop if you are in the area.

I took my youth group to this museum and it was a great place for the students to walk around the property and learn about Buffalo Bill. There is a small tour in the museum house that is also interesting.

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 filled with soldiers; probably the best display on site commemorates the canteen. You may well have the place to yourself when you visit, which is always kind of nice. Not for everyone but we enjoyed it.

Nice museum and village. Lots of local memorabilia. Not sure if there is more going on in season but I was the only one there today. Did enjoy the story of the canteen feeding the troop trains.

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!
