What Else can You See? 

The museum is not the only thing you can visit. On site is a historic CB&Q caboose that was used for ranchers while they were shipping their stock over the railroad. Please ask the front desk, to look at the inside. 


Gage County Historical Society and Museum also owns the Filley Stone Barn and the Tri- County Oregon Trail Marker. Please ask the front desk for the directions to both  locations. 

What to Expect

  • Your admission is good all day. You may come and go as you please.
  • Remember to wear comfortable shoes, so you can take your time exploring the exhibits.
  • Bring your sweater or coat. We keep our galleries cold to preserve our antiques and artifacts.
  • Don’t forget your camera, but please leave your video camera at home.
  • Food and Beverage are not allowed in the exhibit halls. 
  • Children younger than 18 are welcome with an accompanying adult.
  • Ask for the “Museum Scavenger Hunt” activity, which guides kids through the exhibits and provides the whole family with a way to dig deeper into Gage County's past. Inquire at the front desk. 


The Gage County Historical Society and Museum is accessible with a historic passenger depot bench for visitors to rest on. 

Public restrooms are also available on location at the museum but not at the Filley Stone Barn or the Tri-County Marker.
