Cambridge Museum

The Cambridge Museum
612 Penn St.
Cambridge, NE 69022

The Cambridge Museum is a spectacular place to lose yourself in the past and expand your knowledge about Cambridge, about Nebraska, and about the United States - all inside an  8,000-square-foot building at 612 Penn Street.

You'll be surprised how much local history you'll find within the walls of the museum ... and, well, a few peculiarities, too.  Like a two-headed calf, a dwarf calf, and a taxidermy mount of a coyote. But you'll also find an astonishing array of Native American artifacts, unique farm tools, and so much more!

Natural-history collections include geological collections of rocks and minerals, fossils of prehistoric plants and animals, and mounted birds and animals. Exhibits of pioneer home settings and businesses recreate the early lifestyle of Cambridge. Pioneer weaponry, agricultural tools, and livestock memorabilia also are featured.

The Cambridge Museum's art gallery hosts temporary art exhibits and a collection of paintings from local artists. You'll also find collections of old photographs, postcards, newspapers, books, and coin and stamp collections. The museum also has various media equipment available for special presentations.

Museum hours:
April to October: Tuesday through Sunday, 1-5 p.m.
October to April: Saturday and Sunday only, 1-5 p.m.
