05/20/2019 - Legacy of the Plains Museum Hosts Scotts Bluff Monument Display
Scotts Bluff National Monument is excited to announce a partnership with Legacy of the Plains Museum to host an exhibit to commemorate Scotts Bluff National Monument’s centennial in 2019. The exhibit titled “100 Years of Scotts Bluff National Monument” will be open to the public starting Thursday, May 9. Showcasing the vast history and culture at Scotts Bluff National Monument, the exhibit will feature an original soap box derby car, an adobe brick made by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the 1930s, historical photographs, interpretive displays, and the William Henry Jackson prints originally housed in the Visitor Center, which is undergoing a major renovation and expansion project.
The partnership with Legacy of the Plains will allow visitors to still experience the interpretive and educational value they’ve come to expect at National Park Service sites. Visitors can see the park film in the temporary Visitor Center, explore the park, and then head to Legacy of the Plains to round-out their visit with the centennial exhibit and museum.
The centennial exhibit will be free and open to the public through September. Regular museum admission is required for the main gallery. Legacy of the Plains Museum is open Monday through Saturday 9:00 AM-5:00 PM and Sunday 1:00-5:00 PM.
