A great place to spend an afternoon. Standing by the skeleton of a prehistoric elephant or hanging out with some really strange creatures can really stir your imagination. Well displayed and good documentation. Beautiful gallery on Native Americans with excellent audio and visual info. Intestinal...More

My children and I love Morill Hall! Mammoths, saber toothed tigers, and many other extinct animals once roamed Nebraska. Wonderful site, and a visit can be 30 minutes, up to several hours, depending on your interest.

From the mammoth statue outside the museum to the skeletons inside the museum, there are cool artifacts to see. Our kids loved the kids’ room on the top floor, and even the adults had fun trying to guess the smells. It was a lot of...More

I was taking a walking tour of the university and stumbled across the State Museum. It modestly-sized but has a large and interesting exhibit of mastodons, mammoths, and related mammals. There were also some other interesting rotating exhibits. At $6 it was a bargain. It...More

This relatively small natural history museum is a little treasure house of exhibits. I enjoyed it thoroughly, will return often as they change the exhibits and have special exhibits. It's a standout for kids!

Have taken many friends from different parts of the country and they are always impressed. There are things for all ages. If you take the time to read or listen to the presentations, you will be there a long time.

I have never got too excited about this place. However, my kids love going here. We have a membership and go at least once a month, more in the winter when the weather is bad outside. They have dinosaurs so what more do kids need.
