Our Members Make History Happen

The work we do to discover, preserve, and share Nebraska's history wouldn't be possible without the support of History Nebraska members. A History Nebraska member takes their passion for history and community farther than most by taking action and directly supporting the world's largest home for Nebraska history.

Last year, the support of our members allowed over 250,000 people to discover Nebraska history firsthand at our historic sites. They gave over 6000 schoolchildren a hands-on history experience they couldn't get anywhere else. They enabled countless historical discoveries both large and small.
