The Museum of the Fur Trade is open May 1 through October 31 from 8 to 5 every day. Admission is $5 for adults (18 and over) and children are free. Off-season by appointment. Please call 308-432-3843, or e-mail

The museum is located three miles east of Chadron, Nebraska, on U. S. Highway 20, in the northwest corner of Nebraska, once the homeland of Crazy Horse, Spotted Tail, and Red Cloud. The museum is on the route to Yellowstone and the Black Hills are 60 miles north. The original Cabela’s on I-80 and Hwy 385, south of Chadron and Nebraska’s number one attraction in Nebraska, is a great place to leave the interstate and to begin seeing the legendary American West.
