This Small-Town Nebraska Museum Is Right Out Of Your Nightmares

(Ed. note: since the time of initial publication, the Museum of Shadows has relocated to Plattsmouth. You may now find the museum at 502 Main St, Plattsmouth, NE 68048.)

The tiny town of Elmwood might be the last place you would expect to find a world-class collection of haunted objects. But the newly-opened Museum of Shadows has brought the paranormal right to small-town Nebraska, and it’s one of the most fascinating places you’ll ever visit.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The Museum of Shadows is located at 116 N 4th St, Elmwood, Nebraska. It is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm. Learn more at their website or on their Facebook page.
