The Sarpy County Museum strives to protect, preserve, and promote the history of Sarpy County. Sarpy County was a springboard for Nebraska’s settlement and expansion. It’s rich history ranges from local Native American tribes to Offutt Air Force base.
The museum showcases a variety of historical information and artifacts. Historical documents available for research include digitized newspapers, naturalization records, and digitized and printed photos.
Since opening in 1970, the museum has continued to accumulate historically significant items and documents. It is no surprise that after more than 50 years, we have outgrown our space. In addition, through the generous donation of Bill and Judy Wimmer, the museum will be the future home of the nationally renowned Wimmer Railroad Collection.
The need for additional museum space, numerous current building repairs, and major upgrades have prompted us to look for a new space.
Announced in the fall of 2022, the Sarpy County Museum has plans to build a new facility celebrating human ingenuity in a more central and accessible location at the SW corner of Hwy 370 & 90th St.
We are excited to move into the next chapter of Sarpy County history.
You can help us make history by volunteering, contributing to the Pioneer Fund, or by participating in our Naming Opportunities.
