Learn More About Nebraskans from Hundreds of Years Ago at the Piecing Together the Past Exhibit

Many thousands of people have lived their lives in Nebraska. They left no written records and we don't know their names or stories – but they left clues. Starting in November, the Nebraska History Museum explores Nebraska's deep past with its newest exhibit, Piecing Together the Past: An Exhibit Exploring 13,000 Years of History with Nebraska's Archeologists. Check it out for yourself this Tuesday, November 26th.

Archeologists are like detectives, finding clues that tell a meaningful and compelling story. Piecing Together the Past will take you on an incredible journey through Nebraska's history, highlighting the clues discovered over decades of searching. The exhibit will also introduce you to the archeologists who have dedicated their careers to exploring the unknown and have helped to tell our state's unique story.

Nebraska History Museum is a longtime state museum that offers cultural artifacts, history exhibits, tours, and a hands-on learning room. History Nebraska was founded in 1878 to "encourage historical research and inquiry, spread historical information … and to embrace alike aboriginal and modern history." In 1883 it was designated a state institution and began receiving financial support from the legislature. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency.

Generous support for the Piecing Together the Past exhibit is provided by the Nebraska Department of Transportation, National Park Service, and the Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation.

See this fascinating new exhibit on November 26th at the Nebraska History Museum! General admission is free for visitors of all ages. For more information, please contact the Nebraska History Museum at (402) 471-4782 or visit www.history.nebraska.gov.
