Daily Activities

See and Do

Daily activities in Railroad Town run from May 1 - Labor Day each year.

Just what can you do in a 19th Century town? Plenty!

Exploring the town is a good way to start!  Railroad Town, Nebr. is a living, working town full of people happy to talk to you about their lives in the year 1897. However, for those wanting to plan your day at Stuhr Museum a little more, every day includes hands-on activities for children and adults to take part in that help paint a vivid picture of life during the pioneer era.

Here’s a sample of activities you can enjoy in Railroad Town anytime!
