The Nebraska History Museum - Last Call!

Welcome back!

Among the exciting events that are happening in the next 6 weeks or so specifically related to Celebrating the archaeological history of Nebraska, there are some old favorite attractions that should be on your Nebraska Archaeology radar.

One of those in particular is the Nebraska History Museum in Lincoln (Located at the corner of 15th & P Streets. Address 131 Centennial Mall).  Starting September 1, 2014 the museum will be closed for renovations to the building, which was constructed in 1967 as the Lincoln Elks Club, so the last call for visiting the exhibits on display will be August 31, 2014.

The renovations will  be quite extensive and will require museum staff to take down the exhibits and close the museum until the work is completed.  The Nebraska History Museum is expected to re-open in early 2016.  Until then there will be other occasional options for viewing exhibits related to Nebraska's history.  The Nebraska History “Museum on the Move” will offer periodic programming at locations around town and around the state. School programs, free family fun days, and “Hour at the Museum” story programs will be offered at the Nebraska State Historical Society headquarters building at 1500 R Street, Lincoln.

For more information on the exhibits currently on display go to: 

And for more information on the renovation project visit:

We will update this page with information about the traveling exhibits throughout the renovation process so, keep an eye out!  Once again - the last day for exhibits will be August 31 and the museum will be officially closed for renovations on September 1, 2014.

We, along with museum staff, hope to see you in the upcoming weeks!

Until next time, safe travels and happy troweling!
