Jerry - thank you for the kind words. We will be doing some work on the Fonner Rotunda in the next few months and hopefully that takes care of some of the "crowded" issues. Thanks, again, for your visit.

We enjoyed the Stuhr, especially the Wings over the Platte art show and sale. The permanent exhibits are well crafted and of broad interest. Nice gift shop and beautiful building.

Definitely a great place to visit with the family. Our grandchildren are young, but like the rail town, the blacksmith, the candy shop and more. We also did the inside displays which they liked. Historically accurate, interesting, and worth a couple of hours.
