Hastings Museum

Hastings Museum

Hastings Museum is the largest municipal museum between Chicago and Denver. Featuring a Theatre with a 70-foot wide screen and large full-domed Planetarium, we house dozens of animal species set in their natural habitats, allowing you to get an up-close look at many amazing creatures!

We also chronicle the history of the early inhabitants of the Nebraska plains while providing a look back at the creatures that used to roam this area and swim in the Cretaceous Sea. Of course you’ll also discover how Kool-Aid, the famous soft drink invented in Hastings, came to be such a success.

Hastings Museum, accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, connects people to the world – and universe – through educational programs, exhibits and films, and inspires respect for, and understanding of, our past and future.
