Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer
Located in a state-of-the art facility designed by renowned architect Edward Durell Stone, the man who designed the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, the Stuhr Museum has everything from art to agricultural equipment. The museum is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the pioneers who settled the plains of central Nebraska, as well as the history and culture of the Great Plains. The museum features a living history village called Railroad Town, designed to evoke a 1890s-era prairie village and made up of many original period structures moved to the museum.
