While we were hanging out in Kearney NE, Dan mentioned that we were very close to this somewhat old but very interesting museum. Self-proclaimed ‘largest private collection of Americana anywhere’, the Harold Warp Pioneer Village in Minden, NE boasts of holding 50,000 irreplaceable items of historical value on it’s 20 acres of property.
It was a great little walk-through of American History. From the old Automobiles to the odd collections and even a very cool Original Gypsy Wagon!
Favorites included Dad & Dan playing checkers outside the Old Country Store and discussing the operations of the HUGE train on site.
We spent several hours wandering around and exploring this treasure trove of Americana. If you happen to be in the area, it’s worth a short side trip.
