REVIEWS OF Stuhr Museum-Prairie Pioneer IN Nebraska

Megan Schneider

Love this place. It's so expansive, there's always something new to see. The workers are kind and informative. I have very young kids, and they like our visits here.

Gregory Cutting

Some exhibits weren't open. Maybe it's too early in the season, or maybe because it's Sunday. Would like longer hours on Sundays. Would really like to see the rusty train cars in Railroad Town restored. Otherwise, I enjoyed it a lot.

Night Star

Was a cool experience and also an employee got a fact wrong I’m trying to see if the employee was right here’s the fact: roundhouses are the only places that hold locomotives. I thought but sheds are in the UK and roundhouses are US. So why that answer?

Robert Wright

Really enjoy how careful they have been to reconstruct the past. Their living history volunteers are helpful and very knowledgeable. We especially enjoyed the Memorial Day reenactment. It's worth the time to see the entire museum.

Gay Crandell

Had a wonderful time. Visiting the special little town brings back memories.. people are nice and the weather was perfect.. Enjoyed the pictures Todd painted. Oh, great ice cream too.

Vickie Lonowski

Enjoyed spending time with family

Neil Lawrence

Awesome reenactment of Nebraska statehood. A very relaxing day. Great staff, so really want to share the way things were done. I didn't know that electricity, and telephones had come to Grand Island so early on.

Jeff B

Can't miss this if you are in the area.

Cindy Malander

It was fantastic.

Jaci Szczepanski

We got lucky to find this museum on the weekend of the eclipse and can't express our gratitude to the park staff enough for opening their doors. What a treat! This museum is a real gem hidden in the middle of nowhere. Staff is dressed in period costume and is very knowledgeable about the time. The buildings are lovingly cared for. We recommend taking a picnic with you to enjoy somewhere in the beautiful grounds, then stopping by the general store for some old timey sweets for dessert. All of our elementary aged children loved this and the whole family learned together.

Kyra Hoffmann

The museum had a wide range of exhibits from saddles to toasters to art. A nice slice of Nebraska life over the last 200 years.

Raymond Landry

Fantastic museum. Not to be missed.

Joe Niemeier

Amazing place to learn about the history of the Sandhills, pioneers, early settlers on that area of the Platte valley. Farming and life in the late 1800s.. lots of hands on exibits and the railroad town is a step back in time. Great ice cream!

Jennie Bennett

A beautiful place to spend the day. It was so much fun, and the price for.both entry and product was fair. Bring your walking shoes and appetite. The little store offers ice cream, sandwiches and beverages. It' you are having lunch in the 1800's. We were able to bring our dog....just keep them on a leash and bring poop bags to clean up after them. Those folks who were dressed in time wardrobe, did a great job with history and questions. An all around fun day. You wind be disappointed. Enjoy.

Kimma in Nebraska

Krista Branz

We went for Christmas past and had a nice time!

Mark Peterson

Great history review with interactions with the authentic town folks.

Sherma Jones

Truly the gem of the prairie. You could visit a hundred times and still learn something new each visit. The summer classes for children are unmatched and give a great sense of pride and appreciation for the past. Their special events are wonderful-- from Vintage Game Night to their historical Christmas Past tour, it's an amazing place to learn and "feel" the history of our area. No matter the season, Stuhr Museum has something unique and wonderful to offer.

Jose A Lopez

Very nice exhibits and the characters were very authentic in both their look and knowledge. Excellent for the family.

Ramona Miller

My large family, including a 1 year old and a 6 year old, spent 7 hours at the museum. There was not a moment where the kids weren't laughing and having an amazing time. If that doesn't tell you how wonderful this place is, nothing will

Casey Hermanson

Wow, an amazing Country museum cmplex. Many areas to explore both inside and outside. Friendly staff. Always willing to help with questions or suggestions. Large collection of antique tractors and cars. Railroad Town to explore, as well as other out buildings. You can easily spend an entire day here.

Mila Dekok

Went for the Christmas tree display. I have COPD they went out of their way to accommodate me.

Laura Cejka

So much to learn! I went early on a summer day and I'm glad I did as it gets very hot here in the summer and there is a lot of walking to do at this museum. You'll want to chat with each of the craftsmen to get the fullest experience. The Silver Dollar Cafe has the best chicken salad sandwich I have ever eaten. Didn't expect that from a museum!

Katherine McDermott

Love the Railroad Town! The exhibits in the main building area great too

Alex Howe

Stop here if you have the chance. There is a lot to be learned.

Really cool and engaging with townspeople "living" in the old historic town as their characters would have.

Debbie Jonsson

It's a neat Museum and I love the idea that my pass also works over in Hastings

Brent Eilert

Great Prairie Museum and Pioneer village. Hosted the Aug 21 2017 Eclipse and did an outstanding job. Very positive asset for Grand Island. I recommend this location.

Elaine Campbell

Always a fabulous museum to visit!!

Jenna Flitcroft

I visited in the off-season and was still super impressed with the museum. There is a lot of Nebraska history being preserved and shared in an engaging way. I can't wait to get the full experience when the village comes to life again next summer.


Such a fun interactive environment to learn about our country's history! The whole family had a great time (from the grandparents to the kids). There's something here for everyone to enjoy!

Delray Gust

Lots of fun and educational

Becky Laswell

Visited in the summer when the Railroad Town was open, and that offered tons to see including plenty of areas for active kids to play. The grounds are large so be prepared to walk. The main building, while lovely, didn't have a ton that captured my interest, but it was still a treasure trove of pioneer history.

LaVina Cordelia

This is an absolutely wonderful place! The Railroad Town is so authentic, and family friendly. So much history, so much beauty. Spend an entire day there!

Kevin Kruse

We had a great experience here seeing all the well kept up old building's and machines. We will never forget watching the eclipse here either.

Morgan Smith

This was an amazing museum experience! This is something you could spend all day at! Very interested, and there is so much to look at and read about.

Brittany K

Friendly staff and guides. Nice little road trip pit stop. Many exhibits spread on large area. Only stopped for a small amount of time but it was nice to get a glimpse of life back then. Great jewelry and trinkets in main building gift shop.

Dan Schulz

We enjoy stopping by the Stuhr Museum when we're in town. Lots of Nebraska history. The new exhibit, Pioneer Medicine is very interesting for the entire family. Makes a modern day trip to the dentist seem like a trip to Disneyland.

Kim Jones-Feliciano

Beautiful place. A real preserved prarie town.


Visited on a road trip from Cali to IL and spent the day touring the museum. It was beautiful and we'll kept. For the traveler who enjoys history definitely worth checking out.

Bobette Cooper

I grew up driving by the Stuhr Museum but never made it there until today. It was cheaper than I anticipated and was well worth the money! I was also surprised at how much they have there. I definitely recommend stopping by. Give yourself at least 3 hours.

Brian Mann

Always a great stop.

Gene Hardy

If you want to see how the frontier people made it that's the place to go see

heather welsh

Great place to take kids of all ages.

Twyla Hadley

Wonderful, beautiful, informative facility.

Mritunjay Kumar

Awesome place to see the old thing and specially a small lake with lot of duck. Lovely place

Robin Arroyo

I was a bit disappointed to find out after we paid that all of the buildings were still locked up for the season. Definitely a beautiful place to visit.

Suzy Stern

Great experience with our beloved cousins

Billie Herron

Step back into the past with a working railroad town ,watch how people lived in a simpler time

Ryan Bjornberg

This place is crazy. I went as a homeschool group and we got to pretend we were in the civil war and learned how to properly hold a musket and March etc. We also got to be pioneers and cook really good food from scratch scratch. It was an awesome time.

Kristin Fittje

This was the perfect place to watch the eclipse. There was enough around to keep my kiddo entertained, as well as wide expanses to watch the eclipse.

John Palmer

Beautiful grounds and some great history lessons


Went here to watch the eclipse. Really beautiful location with a lot of cool exhibits. We had a really good view of the eclipse and it was neat watching NASA release weather balloons, but it took forever to get out afterwards and they didn't make anywhere near enough T-shirts.

Chela Luevano

A good way to learn about our history.

Amanda Solem

This is a quiet little historical museum. You can walk through railroad ties and even see things like a real blacksmith at work!

Jessica Keil

Wonderful place

jim labart

A really good place to visit. You will learn alot there to. Everything is well laid out to look at.

Matthew Dicke

Great living history town and museum. Friendly people with lots of stories to tell.


My favorite museum! Lots to do and see, especially on holidays. Don't forget to visit Railroad Town, the farm machinery building, and the Fonner Rotunda!

The Glitch

Our children love coming here throughout the summer! Lots to see and do!

Mark Anthony Escalera Sr

An excellent museum and worth visiting more than once. So much to see and do. Period costumes. 100+ year old cars, tractors, and farm implements. Beautiful grounds. Places to feed koi fish, or ducks, or chickens. Indian village and an old West town.

Trenton Gustafson

Great history and staff that love their jobs

Jeff Mitchell

It's got some exibits you can't see anywhere else.

Laurie Spence

Pretty museum with a huge variety of memorabilia. Mel, guide in the antique auro and farm machinery, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly! Really enjoyed him. Must try the frozen pickle juice at the general store. Very refreshing and unique.

Davy Thompson

Great hosts for the solar eclipse event. Grand Island and Hall County should be proud of this amazing museum. Job well done to all the staff and volunteers.

Jason Schoonover

Best museum I've been to

Carlos Nicolas

In this museum you will know everything from Nebraska history from 1830 to 1930. Wonderful old town that will take you to the old times. You should come and visited. Not expensive. A big plus for artist also.

Judy Denton

We went here for the eclipse. It was nice of the Stuhr to open to the public but they should have had more port a pots for that many people.

Yvonne Goldsmith

The museum was everything that the brochure said it was. The old time Town had citizens dressed in Period dress and they knew their history and all the tasks that they were to perform according to the building that they hosted. One lady makes her own hats and it was so incredible to watch her do this. The blacksmith was a lot of fun and the tin maker will make you a cookie cutter if you just tell him what you want. We very much enjoyed our visit.

Teresa Riggs

Loved this spacious land with all the older homes and stores.people dress in period costumes and very nice.spend the day.

Marc Wilson

Amazing place. My children and I never got bored

Deb H

We were there on a Sunday. The town had buildings open but the out houses and barns were locked up. Was very hot day but the restrooms were cleaned and air conditioned.

Joel Olena

Good place to take kids too see what real life was like

Ron Dixon

There is something for every age here.

Andre Hoyt

Love this place because of the amount of effort into creating characters to connect us with the past. The blacksmith for example new his trade in great detail and answered every question we had with great enthusiasm. For the kids to walk into a pioneer home and see the women dressed as they were in the past helps them to understand how life was. Great place to learn and to connect with the past.

Candace Flavell

This museum is terrific for anyone, but especially children . It is a great way to give them a real historical experience of life in the olden days. It is very well kept up and beautifully maintained. I highly recommend it for travelers as well as the general public to experience over and over again.

Jason McClellan

Had a great guide and the living history in railroad town was great.

Gail Jones

Great display of native American Indian artifacts. Some back to BC. Railroad town fun for the kids and adults.

Moyan Ryall

Fun place for the family. I went on my own had a great time with self tour and reasonably priced. Go and enjoy you will not be disappointed

Broken Windows

We planned to spend an hour and stayed for 5. You can drive around to each of the exhibits and park very close. Important in the heat. There is a lot to see.

Nature Hannah

Those who complained about nothing to see here must have come during winter hours. The website clearly explains that winter hours mean most everything is closed up for winter. Thankfully the property and the visitor center were still open and everything is on a drivable loop so we were able to get around in our truck. This place was amazing, even for a quick trip...which was in winter, and with construction on one of the main buildings. We plan on coming back when the normal season underway and everything is open.

hailey clark

The main building was super clean and it was very easy to see all of the exhibits. Each exhibit had a short and easy to read description. Railroad town was our favorite though. The blacksmith served in the military, as do my husband and I, and he told us the tale of the horseshoe and the reason why it's lucky, then he made two and gave them to us. The whole place is beautiful and educational, and the staff is very sweet.

Jeffrey Vaillant

Missed living history presentation. Great exhibits.

Tim Schoell

Great place to learn some of the history of Nebraska. The people who work there are very friendly, and know their history. They play their roles very well.

Steven Lockhart

One of the best museums.

Rick Mahnn

Every Nebraska student gets carted off here via bus to learn about "the great American planes". I guess im glad I wasn't around during that time. It's just out of this world to think that in such a small fragment of history, we've advanced from a Cast iron stove warming the house to a Condensing Furnace.

Scott N Debbie Claiborn

Beautiful place to visit. Staff very helpful.

Bret L Osburn

Great place to take the kids for a day or even just for you

Bruce Chapin

Excellent presentation of local pioneer history.

Jonathan Andreason

Always a 5 star experience when we go. Great museum and railroad town!

Jeff Thomas

Wonderful place to spend the day learning about history.

Stuhr family home and local buildings preserved.

Steven Marchfield

Really great place, unlike other museums there are very few 'do not touch' signs and almost no ropes keeping you away from an exhibit. Reasonably priced for the experience.

dozerD LX

Super unique place to visit for the whole family. Very friendly and helpful staff. Summer is the time to visit. All the old stores and people are in 1890s attire.

Railroad town is awesome in the summer. The "citizens" are great to interact with
