Upcoming Event: NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM!!!

Come join us for a Night At The Museum!


 The event is from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. on October 24th. You can explore the tales of the ghosts of firefighters, and participate in other fun activities!  Past firefighters and their families will awaken to share their lives, memories, and what happened to them. They will be around the museum for a chance to talk with visitors and to tell their tales. This is a fundraiser for the museum partnered with East Lawn Missions, a food pantry and outreach ministry of Kearney First UMC’s mission committee. Admission is five dollars for adults and three dollars for youth. However, if two cans or two articles of clothing are brought in, you can receive a two-dollar discount. Cans and clothes will go to East Lawn Missions, and all other proceeds will benefit the museum. So join us October 24th, 7-9pm, for a spooky, riveting, and educational experience for the whole family as the museum comes to life!For more information visit our Facebook page: Nebraska Firefighters Museum & Education Center
