Welcome to the Sarpy County Museum. The Sarpy County Historical Museum protects, preserves, and promotes the rich history of Sarpy County. The Sarpy County Museum is currently located in Bellevue, next to Offutt Air Force Base.

Sarpy County has a rich county history, from the local Native American tribes to the large Offutt Air Force military base, the museum has a variety of historical topics and items ready to catch your eye. The museum also offers research opportunities with our digitized newspapers, naturalization records, and digitized and printed photos.

With so many amazing pieces inside, it’s not a surprise that we have outgrown our space. Historical county treasures marking strides in human ingenuity are currently contained in a small, 1970s building in a far less-traveled part of the county. 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, more centrally located in the county. The 28,000 square foot facility will focus on five major themes of human ingenuity:

  • Agriculture
  • Early Residents
  • Historical Community Growth
  • Military
  • Transportation

We are excited to move into this next chapter of Sarpy County’s history with a facility better suited for historic preservation and visitor needs! Please join us in this project by contributing to the Pioneer Fund, or by asking about our Naming Opportunities.
