“Home of the Kool-aid man!”

Hastings Museum is the largest municipal museum between Chicago and Denver. Featuring a theater with a 70-foot wide screen and large domed planetarium, housing dozens of animal species set in their natural habitats.  It also provides the history of the early inhabitants of the Nebraska plains, from paleo-Indians to euro-Americans, while providing a look back at the creatures that used to roam this area and swim in Cretaceous Sea. Of course you’ll also discover how Kool-Aid, the famous soft drink invented in Hastings, came to be such a success.
