Located at 908 Yellowstone Ave., the museum is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“Water/Ways” is a multi-faceted exhibit which combines educational activities and digital story-telling to explore the importance of water as an essential resource and a source for inspiration, spirituality, recreation and political power.
Following its six weeks in Alliance, “Water/Ways” will conclude its tour of Nebraska in Gering from February 23 to April 11, 2019 at the Legacy of the Plains Museum.
