    The Sarpy County Museum is planning to build a new museum facility!

    Currently located in the heart of Old Town Bellevue, the museum has purchased land centrally located in the county at the corner of Highway 370 and S. 90th Street in Papillion. We are in the very initial stages of this project and will continue to make updates on this project as they are available.
    The three-acre site will feature a 28,000-square-foot museum with enhanced space for the museum’s current collection, traveling exhibits, administrative/education areas, and archival storage. The facility will incorporate more accessibility features and improved parking, walkability, and visibility to the public.
    The building will also allow the museum to house the nationally renowned Wimmer Railroad Collection. This preeminent private railroad collection acquired by Bill and Judy Wimmer is comprised of more than 10,000 unique pieces of railroad history.
    "We are honored to receive such a collection, and we are greatly appreciative of the support we've received for this next phase in the museum's history," says Ben Justman, long time museum Director.
