  • The museum was very interesting and we especially enjoyed walking outside and visiting each of the buildings- barbershop, general store, church, school, etc., in their original forms.  more »
  • This little gem was across from the Best Western Sundowner so I decided to go and see what it was about. It is $3 to get in, which is super cheap for all you get to see; plus you get a wooden nickel!!...  more »
  • This is such a beautiful musem. I have no idea how such a small town could afford to have created such a world-class historical park. American Pickers would love this place!  more »
  • It's always fun to visit here. And the Founders/July 4th celebrations are REALLY busy! Stop by and check it out. Learn about some local history and check out all of the buildings. The tannery is located at the rear & upstairs of the barn.
  • We really, really loved this place. 2 adults and 3 kids 6 and under. It costs a little bit of money now and its not ftee...but it was worth it. Lots of historic buildings and my little bit lived the old time gas station and gas pumps the best. The interactive museum in the back was also fun. I will definitely recommend, especially over the Pioneer Village in Minden, NE. This is comparative too that but way better.
