The Museum of Nebraska Art was founded in the old Kearney Office in 1986. The office, first built in 1991 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and completely remodelled in 1991 to 1993. When it was completed, it reopened as the Museum of Nebraska Art that we know today.
It houses the official collection of Nebraska art done by Nebraska artists. The Museum also boasts of more than 5,000 pieces of art that are housed in 11 separate galleries featuring local artists, artist explorers, modern and contemporary artists.
A variety of programs are also offered within the Museum. They encourage an interactive learning as well as the development of creativity for children.
The Museum is open every Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday. Admission is free for everyone.
