Please note! This museum does not open until 10:00am not 9:00am as posted on here. Would have loved to visit but we preferred to keep going as we have 5 hours to drive today.

The museum had interesting exhibits and information regarding the area. We really went to see Railroad Town but us was closed for the season. However, they are still doing a 12:00 informational tour. The Executive Director, Chris, did open one building so we could look around. Would love to go back to see everything operational.

This living history museum surpassed all of our expectations! We found it by accident driving from Nebraska to Oklahoma, and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in experiencing what it was like to live as a pioneer during the 1880's. From the moment we drove onto the property, we were greeted with a smile by the ticket agent. She directed us to Railroad Town where we strolled through several original buildings such as the mercantile (where Elizabeth greeted us in 1880's attire as if we had just ridden our horses there from 100 miles away). Her enthusiasm was a true delight! From there we went into the Silver Dollar Café and had an $1.00 ice cream cone (also served with a smile) and into the Millinery Shop where we met Shirley making hats that represented the time period. From here we journeyed to the Tinsmith Shop (run by Loren), and the Blacksmith Shop (operated by master blacksmith Randy) who both educated us on these crafts with such passion that it was hard to leave. Everyone we encountered seemed to have a calling for recreating the town as it would have been originally. The entire experience was just magical, and I encourage everyone passing through this part of the U.S. to stop by! You will not be disappointed!

Beautiful stately grounds and well taken care of buildings. Most of the staff were incredibly friendly, thoughtful and very informed. Machinery and tractor building had the most amazing guide to speak with! Would go again in a heart beat.

My family and I stopped here while staying the night in Grand Island on a road trip. We wanted something to break up our day so it wasn't only driving. We were pleasantly surprised by what this museum had to offer! We thoroughly enjoyed Railroad Town (make sure to wear a mask when entering buildings with the historical actors!). Our 17 month old daughter was able to walk/run around and get some energy out before being stuck in the carseat for a few hours. Inside the main building there are a lot of really neat relics of the past to look at. We were so impressed with Railroad Town that we almost skipped the inside of the building, but we are very glad that we didn't! I would definitely stop if near Grand Island! We spent about 90 minutes, could have spent more, could have gone a little quicker too.
