The Nebraska History Museum is a great place to go to learn about Nebraska's long and often complex history. There is no cost to admission, only a voluntary donation. more »
It was good to see how well recent renovations look. The exhibits on our visit were eclectic, consisting mostly of various artifacts on display without any unifying theme other than their Nebraska heritage. The explanatory texts were very helpful, though, and the visit was worthwhile. Sometimes, the "let it all hang out" strategy is good for a museum with as strong a collection as this one.
We were visiting Lincoln to see family and spent a couple hours at this museum. Lots of great exhibits on the history of the plains and Nebraska in particular. First floor dedicated to stock car racing if that is your thing. The 2nd floor is more your typical history exhibits. Also great for kids with some hand on exhibits. This is not the Smithsonian but a great local museum. See it if time permits. The presidential dolls are very creepy. Wish they told you more about them. Museum is free of charge.
