Hastings Museum is the largest municipal museum between Chicago and Denver. It features a super screen 3D Theatre; a full dome Planetarium; and dozens of exhibits that feature animal species set in their natural habitats. The Museum chronicles the history of the early inhabitants of the Nebraska plains, from paleo-Indians to euro-Americans, and provides a look back at the creatures that used to roam this area and swim in the Cretaceous Sea. Visitors also will discover how Kool-Aid, the famous soft drink invented in Hastings, Neb., came to be such a success. The Nature Nook, highlights conservation of Nebraska's natural habitats, including prairies, wetlands, and rivers, as well as agricultural settings and urban environments. Hastings Museum is among only 5% of museums in the country accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. For more information and events, see HastingsMuseum.org.
