About Our Museum

The Lincoln County Historical Museum was built by the Lincoln County Historical Society in 1976. It opened its doors on July 4, 1976, and has been growing ever since. The central Nebraska museum now encompasses approximately eight acres that includes the main museum building and an entire village made up of primarily historic structures from the Lincoln County area. A visit to this compelling Nebraska museum will immerse you in the native culture and history of this region of the Great Plains.

Mission Statement

The Lincoln County Historical Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve, and exhibit the history of our region, while providing access to, education about, and inspiration from that history for all.
