Our Message

The Nebraska National Guard Museum exists to ignite an excitement and
understanding for those who have sacrificed, persevered and shown courage while serving in the
Nebraska National Guard.


It’s been a breathtaking past year with all of the activities and projects completed by the Nebraska National Guard Historical Society. From the groundbreaking ceremony at the new Museum location in Seward, NE on July 4th. The movement of four armored vehicles and the entire artifact collection (over 11,000 items) from Lincoln to Seward. The completion of phase I construction ($460K) that will provide the Society with a modern storage, restoration, and repair infrastructure. Along with the pending initiation of Phase II construction ($2.6M) to re-model the entire main floor of the Seward Armory – it has been a highly successful period of time. We move into the fall with the initiation of a capital fundraising campaign to pay for the design and construction of the displays in the Museum with the end state of the project being a world class museum, military library, and education center. We continue to look for volunteers to assist in all of these ongoing projects, so please help us communicate our story with your friends and family that have a desire to participate as we move this organization forward.
