“A great Museum and a must see if in Hastings”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

This is a great museum and the staff and administration has done a fine job. Anything and everything you'd like to see on the history of Hastings, Nebraska and the central plains in general are all covered in this museum. I would suggest it to anyone who comes to Hastings or even has a a couple hours to pull off the interstate and swing into Hastings. Thumbs up for the Hastings Museum!!

“Nice museum!”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

We enjoy taking the kids there, and they don't get tired of it. The museum tries to keep it fresh, while still updating different aspects. The have large screen format films and a planetarium. Well worth the membership!

“Gun collection”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

I realize that this isn't a huge museum, but that is sometimes what makes them great. They have an amazing gun collection.

It has numerous old time vehicles and trucks, gun collections, rock collections, wildlife set in their natural habitat. It also has a planetarium. When we had visitors from Colorado, they were ver impressed that a small city had such a great attraction
