WELCOME

Visit the Archway in Kearney, Nebraska, and celebrate the American spirit of adventure!  For over 200 years, the path along the Platte River through Nebraska, once called the Great Platte River Road, has been a road to adventure.  From the Oregon Trail era through today, the Archway’s family friendly historical exhibit tells the story of those who followed the Great Platte River Road and helped to build America.

From the Oregon Trail era through today, the Archway brings American history to life.

Tickets for the historical exhibit may be purchased in advance or at the time of your visit.
