GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – Stuhr Museum has two big announcements that will affect our season this summer and increase visibility for the museum in other states.
Last week the Nebraska Tourism Commission announced that Stuhr Museum will be one of 80 sites throughout the state selected for the Nebraska Passport Program. As part of this promotion, the museum will have travel “passports” available which encourage participants to explore state attractions in a variety of categories. Stuhr is included in the “Only in Nebraska” category which also includes Boys Town in Omaha, the Homestead National Monument in Beatrice, the State Capital in Lincoln and others. The program runs from May 1 – September 30 and more information on the program can be found at www.visitnebraska.com. An ap for Android and Apple products is also available by searching “Nebraska Passport”.
This is the third time in five years Stuhr has been part of the Nebraska Passport Program and with the Stuhr Building reopening in July, we believe we bring a lot to the table this summer.
Another bit of good news also dropped late last week: Stuhr Museum will be one of 26 recipients of the Tourism Marketing Grant Program through the Nebraska Tourism Commission. The museum received $3,591 for marketing on ExploreBoards in the Kansas City area. ExploreBoards are touch screen kiosks in cities throughout the country that give travelers the option to learn about attractions and events. By targeting a market outside of Nebraska, we hope to reach new travelers along the Interstate who will stop and see our museum.
For more information on either of these two honors, please contact the museum at (308) 385-5316 or online at www.stuhrmuseum.org.
