We have over 125,000 objects in our collections and we continue to collect items that tell the story of Nebraska's history.
Nebraska History Museum Experiences
Learn more through firsthand experiences with Nebraska objects, people, and places! Engaging programs for all ages, innovative exhibits, and docent-led tours help our shared history unfold.
We hope to resume in-person tours of the Nebraska History Museum in the 2020-2021 school year. Please email our staff to let us know the time and date you hope to visit and we will save it for your group.
We are currently developing the year's tour options and will have a good idea of what they will look like by mid-August. Regardless of what the finished tours look like, they will be based around students having the chance to see cool objects from the past and to explore stories from Nebraska's history from multiple perspectives in a safe and interactive way.
With the re-opening of the Nebraska History Museum, we are inviting Nebraska families to participate in a program that lets them safely have a hands-on experience with history. The History Learning Center Experience is a 30-45 minute tour through various hands-on activities in the museum's History Learning Center.
