  • Excellent self-tour takes you all the way through historical buildings, set up like a town. Gorgeous & fairly well preserved. No air conditioning, but if the days are cool enough, you don't even notice. It was over 85 degrees and the buildings were quite pleasant to tour in the late afternoon. The inside museum has a.c., and the info on the North Platte Canteen is worth the trip alone. Plus, they had a special admission deal for 3 museums in town. $10 adults for all three was a great deal for our family!
  • This museum was better than I expected. I didn't know a lot about it before going so I assumed it was a small building with local memorabilia. The building itself houses some great antiques, information about the Canteen, war memorabilia, etc. Out back there are many buildings, including a church, some houses of famous families, buildings from Fort McPherson, and machine sheds. The only thing I was disappointed in were some unprofessional-looking signs and grammatical/spelling errors.
  • The history aspect is fantastic. Be sure to watch the video on the world war two canteen. You will cry!
  • Home of the North Platte Depot and Canteen now, or at least what they could save, plus great historical facts and structures from Lincoln County.
  • Great place! Kids enjoyed the stop.
