The Great Platte River Road Archway

We found quite a surprise when we headed out to Kearny, Nebraska - the Great Platte River Road Archway. It's a stupendous museum that occupies a massive arch over Interstate 80.

Right now you have to drive 2 miles past it to the West and work back (it's worth it) but they're working on their own exit.

If you'll be passing by allow a few hours for a visit. If you're in the region, allow a day to drive out for one - it's worth it.
