We went by on a Sunday afternoon and Ross gave us a great tour of all the old buildings etc. It was great to see a young man volunteering on a Sunday afternoon to share the history of Kearney Nebraska and surrounding area

We had a great visit on opening day. We took the tour and our guide was very good. She answered all of the questions that were asked. It is a very informative and fun place to visit.

The caboose and locomotive were very interesting. The guide took us around to all the buildings and told us all about their history. The blacksmith shop was also interesting. Very worthwhile for the price.
