North Platte Valley Museum                                                308-436-5411  
11th and J, Gering, NE                                                          

  When you think of the days of the old settlers, a picture of horse-drawn carriages,
  covered wagons, one-room school houses, general stores, sod houses, and a
  simpler way of life enters your mind. That's exactly what you will find at Western
  Nebraska's largest historical museum, the North Platte Valley Museum, where the 
  history of our valley comes alive. There are over two dozen displays throughout
  the 10,000 square foot exhibit area, ranging from a family traveling on the Oregon
  Trail in 1850s to Nebraska's first female doctor in the 1890s.  For more pictures,

Call for directions and hours 

  This museum is housed in the old Burlington Railroad Depot, built in 1928.  The
  quaint brick structure was all but abandoned by Burlington Northern Railroad
  Company in the 1990's.  In 1994, volunteers wanting to preserve the history of
  the old railroad and sugar beet factory town decided to convert the old depot
  into a museum. It opened for it's first season in 1999 and is filled with many
  historical items relating to Bayard, Chimney Rock, and the Valley, including
  horse-drawn machinery. It has won 2 awards already in its short existence.
