Stuhr Museum

Relive Pioneer History

Every museum tells a story, but Stuhr Museum puts you in the story.

The Washington Post proclaimed it one of America's top 12 Living History Museums. Good Housekeeping magazine ranks Stuhr Museum as one of the top 10 places to relive America's past.

The 200 acre campus boasts spectacular architecture, gardens, and inspiring historical and artistic exhibits. This family friendly outing is sure to please!

The main Stuhr Building was designed by renowned architect Edward Durell Stone. The museum's 1890s Railroad Town is a recreated prairie community populated by costumed interpreters living out the lives of prairie pioneers: cooking on wood stoves, selling wares in the mercantile, crafting in the planing mill, and hammering horseshoes in the blacksmith’s shop. Festivals and holiday celebrations are abundant all year round in Railroad Town. 

The museum also cares for collections of artifacts related to prairie life, Native Americans and early farm equipment. Other exhibits include an arboretum, Pawnee Indian earth lodge, a historic church, and pioneer farmstead.
