Museum on Main Street brings the world-famous Smithsonian museum to communities across Nebraska. These changing exhibitions focus on our national history and culture. Working with small museums, libraries and other hometown organizations, Humanities Nebraska develops events around these traveling exhibitions. By combining resources, Museum on Main Street brings quality cultural programs to rural citizens and sparks lasting professional improvement for small-town cultural organizations.
Museum on Main Street is a partnership between the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and state humanities councils nationwide that serves the small-town museums and citizens of rural America.
From June 2018 through April 2019, dive into the world’s most important resource: water. “WATER/WAYS,” the next Museum on Main Street exhibition to tour Nebraska, will explore the relationships between people and water: water as both a critical resource and sacred symbol; as a subject of politicians, economists, authors, and artists; and as a source of food, work, recreation, and celebration.
More information about sponsoring “WATER/WAYS” between June 2018 and April 2019 is available by contacting Mary Yager at (402) 474-2131, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
