Experience the history of fur trading that is displayed in a well-thought-out museum with amazing exhibits that share stories via the 6,000-plus artifacts on display.

The Museum of the Fur Trade is just 3 miles east of Chadron, Nebraska. The museum illustrates the daily life in early America of fur traders and Native Americans. The very first business in the New World was that of the North American fur trade. If visiting the area of Dawes County, Nebraska, you should definitely make a stop here. The collection, the number of items, the variety, the condition, the facts, and the significance of the artifacts is unbelievable. The entrance price is just $5 per adult, and it is so very worth it. The museum shows an introductory video, has very professional displays, and offers an audio tour. The video introduces visitors to the Fur Trade and to its history. There is a textiles room that is detailed and incredible. It shares the historical and truthful discussion on how the fur trade impacted the European people and the Native American cultures throughout North America. The museum has accurate reproductions of an early trading post on-site, along with the 1,000s of various artifacts that are inside. The collections are original and include the oldest known point blanket from 1775. They have some firearms that were owned by Kit Carson and seeds that were obtained directly from American Indians over 125 years ago. Each season, new exhibits are added and the collection continues to grow - so each visit here is new and exciting. They also have an interesting gift shop where you can pick out fun souvenirs.
