Stuhr Museum is celebrating 50 years of operation on Sunday, July 30th and we're inviting everyone to help us celebrate. The museum is open on Sunday from Noon - 5 pm.
We will open the gates at Noon for a free day where one and all are welcome to visit the museum and enjoy all we have to offer. In addition to waving admission fees, the day will also feature:
●The "Painting the Legacy of Nebraska" exhibit will be on display, featuring over 100 paintings by internationally known artist Todd Williams representing at least one portrait from each county in the state. This is the official exhibit of the Nebraska Sesquicentennial Commission.
●Todd Williams will be in and around the Stuhr Building, painting a piece and visitors are welcome to watch as he creates a piece of art original to Stuhr Museum.s
●Railroad Town also opens at Noon. Explore our 1890's living history community, visit the historic homes and shops, take a look at what's new in the Mercantile, meet real living history interpreters and much more.
