    The collection is extensive and well interpreted for a museum and history lover. The signs are 'dated' rather than jump-out-and-throttle-you fancy, but this allows the curators to display so very many items. Some new videos are available on the displays. It was interesting to see the Revenant movie costumes and learn of the Museum's role in that production.

    Another spot I found courtesy of the Nebraska Passport Program. I didn't have a lot of time, which is a shame as there was so much to see I could have spent hours wandering around. Interior and exterior displays, and so much wonderful information!

    Beautifully historic, like a time capsule.

    Though I have not returned for years, this museum has left me with so many gems of information that I still think about today. Although it is not big and sterile like some may feel museums should be..it feels organized with care and by people who want to share a history that is being lost.
