GERING, Neb. (AP) – Visitors to the Legacy of the Plains Museum in western Nebraska later this month will find a redesigned exhibit hall.
The Scottsbluff Star-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2cxUODl ) that volunteers have been busy preparing new displays for the $1.2 million project, which will focus on several historical themes. Visitors will find hands-on displays, videos, floor-to-ceiling murals and photographs, as well as antiques ranging in size from tiny arrowheads to massive farm implements.
The grand opening of the revamped museum will coincide with the annual Harvest Festival on Sept. 17 and Sept. 18.
Admission to the festival is $5, and a separate admission for the museum’s grand opening is $10 for adults and $5 for students. Children under 5 are admitted free of charge.
