The Stuhr Museum, located in Grand Island, NE, was established in 1961. Since then it has been collecting and restoring objects and information related to the Nebraska prairie life between the time period of 1840 – 1920. I have been to other living history museums and this one is one of the best.
In their main building they have objects which takes you through the history of prairie life in Nebraska.
Outside the main building you will find ducks and fish swimming in the pond.
There is a garden you can walk through to access the Railroad Town. If you go during the last spring or summer, you can see the daylilies in bloom.
While visiting the Stuhr Museum, don’t miss Railroad Town. It has old trains to tour and numerous historical buildings that has been preserved. If you visit on the correct days, you can see demos from the hat maker, blacksmith, tin smith and carpenter. There are several houses you can tour.
While visiting the Railroad Town, stop by the General Store for some handmade items and the Restaurant for some ice cream.
As you are exploring Stuhr Musuem, watch you step there are many of ducks and goose around.
