Morrill Hall

Established in 1871, the University of Nebraska State Museum is the state's premier museum of natural history. With four floors of interactive hands-on activities and exhibits, visitors of all ages will find something fun to do at Morrill Hall. Our 70,000 square foot museum features Nebraska's past and present biological diversity, its cultural heritage, and tons of great fossils. Check out our Visible Lab to see our Collections people working on actual research. We're also home to "Archie," the world's largest fully mounted and composite Colombian mammoth fossil. Located on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln City Campus, we hope you enjoy your visit.
