A lovely little museum on the University of Nebraska's campus. Some of the exhibits are a little old, but it's still a lovely museum. You could spend all day here looking at each room.

Morrill Hall is a great place to take in a bit of history ranging from fossils to Native American artifacts. Interesting and informative displays make it easy to lose track of time.

They have very interesting artifacts and displays that tells the history of Nebraska. They do have some interactive things for children learn from. You will be amazed at the size of the skeletons of the mammals.

I've been going here since I was a kid. I'm a museum geek and enjoy spending time in them. Mammoth bones, sloth bones, and information about how the area has change is exceptional.
