Go ahead and drink the Kool-Aid

Visit the birthplace of Kool-Aid on a trip to the Hastings Museum Kool-Aid Exhibit. The museum honors Edwin Perkins, who invented the iconic drink in the Nebraska town of Hastings in 1927. Exhibits include old packaging and advertisements, and visitors can follow a fiber-optic river of Kool-Aid that flows through the museum’s lower level.

Get a piece of the #1 cookbook publisher in the country

Visit the Morris Press Cookbook Store in Kearney, a family-owned publisher and printing works that's survived economic booms and crashes since 1933. It began focusing on personalized cookbooks for families, schools and churches in the ’80s, and it’s these additional unsold cookbooks that you can buy. Take along your family recipes and you could leave with your very own personalized cookbook.

Pioneer Time Warp

Visit Harold Warp's Pioneer Village in Minden and you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve stepped back into a bygone age. The replica of a small pioneer town houses thousands of Americana artifacts. The village was created by Harold Warp, who worked his way from childhood poverty to become a millionaire plastics magnate. As a tribute to the opportunities America had given him, he bought a number of historic buildings from his hometown and moved them to a new town square, which became the Pioneer Village living museum. Since the birth of the village in 1950, it has continued to grow and acquire many rare pieces of Americana.

Mosaic in Nebraska State Capitol

A gorgeous art deco mosaic in the Nebraska State Capitol in Lincoln is a colorful depiction of modern and prehistoric life in Nebraska, reflected in the natural elements of water, fire, air and earth. The work was designed by Hildreth Meière, a New York artist, along with the building’s architect and a professor at the University of Nebraska. You can view other murals by the artist in the capitol building on ceilings and floors in the building’s vestibule, foyer and Senate Chamber, as well as the entrance doors to the House of Representatives.


Head to Alliance for a bit of Carhenge fun. The Stonehenge replica created with automobiles is the brainchild of experimental artist Jim Reinders, who decided to take an Americanized approach to England’s Stonehenge. He’s done this using cars, pick-up trucks, an ambulance and a 1962 Cadillac. The sculpture is a proportionately accurate depiction of Stonehenge.
