Pioneer Village, Minden, Nebraska

What a great place to visit.  One needs 2 days to fully see everything here.  Try to pick a cool day so you can spend lots of time in the upstairs exhibits.  There are over 50,000 items to see.  I was impressed the moment we entered the mail building (there are 25 buildings of things to see).  Lots of history.  In one building, you can see the way everyday living has changed from 1830 to 1960.  Kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms are set up to show the way things changed.  There are antique tractors, trucks, automobiles, planes, farm machinery, washing machines, and so much more.  If you are ever in this area, be sure to take a couple of days to see Pioneer Village.
