I loved it all. If you like learning about history and Nebraska's history then you should definitely visit this place.

Nice view into how the great plains were settled. Not an easy life for anyone involved. Good photos, a decent prairie. Good detour. Great place for a short walk on your way to wherever you are going.

Definitely something neat to share with the kids! Love the scenery and displays! Kids enjoyed walking across the bridge after getting over the fear of falling down

Traveling in the area I had some time before an appointment nearby. When I arrived I was greeted by a staff member, given some helpful information about the site, and helped find info about searching family history regarding a homestead elsewhere in the country. I will make another trip back and plan to spend some extended time there.
