Witness the Weird!

Saturday, March 3, 2018 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Nebraska History Museum

Get a behind the scenes look at the secret places we keep 151 years worth of the odd, strange, and unusual.

Artifacts and oddities include:

  • The Blud-Rub
  • The "My Dream Doll" of nightmares
  • William J. Bryan's portrait inside a pig's rear-end
  • A shotgun gopher trap

Other activities will include a reenactment of the Pioneer Zephyr train cutting its own birthday cake and a some music played on a Wiebe hand-crafted violin. Families will also be able to hear Nebraska stories in Read Aloud stations on all three floors of the museum, take a look inside one of our traveling historical trunks, and see how archeology is like a puzzle.
