Stuhr Museum Named “Best in the West” by True West Magazine

GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – Stuhr Museum has been named one of the Top 10 Western Museums of 2015 by True West Magazine in the current issues of the popular publication.

Stuhr joins the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, the Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City, Kansas and the National Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma City on this year's list. We are honored to be recognized for our dedication to the history of the pioneer town builder, which was awarded through nominations and applications to the magazine's website.

“The Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer’s dedication to excellence, and their mission of preserving and interpreting our great Western history for all generations, is inspiring,” says True West Executive Editor Bob Boze Bell. “They keep the Old West vibrant and relevant for 21st century audiences.”

The Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer is honored for its extraordinary exhibitions and dedication to local and regional history, including its recent $7.4 million dollar renovation of the Stuhr Building. Spur Award-winning writer Candy Moulton and the editors of True West picked the winners for this annual award based on the extraordinary efforts of the museums over the past year to create and host new temporary exhibits, as well as maintain dynamic permanent exhibitions.
