Museum Projects

Currently, the Dawson County Museum is working to complete the “Mainstreet Exhibit” and “The Loop”.  A lot of work has gone into thesse two projects over the last 4 years and we are finally very close to being finished!  Mainstreet has been an area in the museum’s new addition that is slowly morphing into a home and business display.  The Loop was an area in the original museum building that had been torn apart and used for storage until renovations began in 2017.  The museum staff is working to add new exhibits to the Loop area, such as “Plectron”, and revitalize old exhibits such as the KRVN Radio Station.

In 2018-19 we are really focusing on the organization and inventory of our paper archives and collections.  Everything donated to the Dawson County Historical Museum is documented in our PastPerfect software.  We are always looking for volunteers to help with inventory and willing to learn PastPerfect! 

Once the items are documented we need to make sure they are properly stored, so we will be purchasing more acid free boxes and tissue paper.     

If there is a certain area you would like to help with or donate to, please let us know. You can call the Dawson County Museum at (308) 324-5340 or email Crystal, the Museum Director, at
