GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – There’s no better way to kick off a great summer at Stuhr Museum than with a free day to explore, experience and enjoy all we have to offer on Saturday, May 10th.
During “Hall County Appreciation Day,” everyone is invited to visit the museum free of charge from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. as a special “thank you” for Hall County’s continued support. During the day, you can:
●Visit the 1890′s Railroad Town, our Living History community, where costumed interpreters live, work and play as if it’s 1894. From the blacksmith shop to the Mercantile to any of Railroad Town’s historic homes, you can go into the buildings, visit with the interpreters and learn about 1890’s life first hand.
●Check out the Farm Machinery Building, where our summer exhibit, “Gears of the Land” is housed. The exhibit features dozens of tractors, automobiles, planting machines, steam engines and other peculiarities from the history of mechanized agriculture and feature new labels with QR codes so you can learn more.
●Stroll through the Hornady Family Arbor where there will be free popcorn from The Grand Theater.
After the gates close at 5 p.m., Stuhr will re-set for a great evening event featuring outdoor movie for the entire family. The “Stuhr Under the Stars” event begins at 7:30 with historic games such as croquet and horse shoes in Railroad Town. Once the sun goes down, we will show "Frozen: The Sing Along Version," the popular Disney film where you are invited to sing along with the popular songs. Popcorn and other goodies will be available for purchase. Gates open at 6 and admission to “Stuhr Under the Stars” is $8 for adults and $6 for children. Please bring your own lawn chair.
