Truckin’ Through Nebraska
Sat, Aug. 12 & Sun, Aug. 13
This traveling exhibit will be parked behind the Museum during Kool-Aid Days! It will include areas where kids will build shelters and test them in a wind chamber or earthquake simulator, design their own 10-acre homestead, test their knowledge of Nebraska, create their own movie, explore toys from the past, craft their own postcards and more. Exhibits will also surround the exterior of the trailer, allowing for optimal play and learning space. Those exhibits will include a timed “chore” challenge obstacle course, foam block invention area, toy creation station, and more.
