  • We were at Bone Creek today for about the 10th time. Every time we go they have well curated exhibits. There are different themes to the exhibits. One having to do with the braceros period in our history, one comparing two contemporary artists, one on flowers, one on corn, and all having to do with farming, planting, harvesting, or some aspect of living on the land. The owners and volunteers all have a passion for agrarian art and for Bone Creek Museum. They are very accommodating, great hosts, answer any questions you might have, or point you to other things you might like. They offer classes occasionally, have great events, and we have never been disappointed. They are proud of David City and can direct you to a couple of great cafe's in town. The BBQ cafe a block west and about 3 businesses north of the museum and a Mexican cafe just west in the same block as the museum. There is an antique store next to the BBQ restaurant, which, by the way serves grass fed burgers and they are very good! If you live in Lincoln or Omaha, it is a great way to slow the pace of life for a day. Treat yourself to Bone Creek Museum, lunch, and a stroll around the beautiful park or walk the streets. There is a nice selection of old and new architecture in the homes near the park. It's a lovely road trip!
  • This little museum is a gem! It's off the beaten track, but well worth the time it takes to get there. The proprietors are knowledgeable and eager to share, but if you prefer to browse on your own they accommodate. As an added bonus, there's a little bar around the corner where I stopped for lunch and had a delicious pulled pork sandwich. I'm sorry I don't remember the name, but the staff at the museum could probably point you in the right direction.
