The Great Platte River Road Archway has been named a must–see museum for 2013.
TrueWest Magazine has included the archway on its top ten list. Museum officials say the opening of the Pawnee Scout Exhibit was a large factor in the magazine's decision.
The exhibit includes the Pawnee Seed Preservation Project and earth lodge, something that helps make history more exciting -- a must to be included on the list.
Ronnie O'Brien, Archway cultural director, said, "We are so thankful for the relationship with the Pawnee people, which make the Scout Exhibit, and other projects possible."
"We are thrilled to see our
efforts to bring to life the story of the people who lived along the Western
Trails recognized by such a respected national magazine as TrueWest," added O'Brien.
The archway is joined in the publication by the Joslyn Art Museum, which was named as one of the top six must–see art museums.
