Exploring Nebraska's Capital City

As the capital and second most populous city in the Cornhusker State, Lincoln is a bustling town with plenty to see and do.

Home to the Nebraska State Capitol, the University of Nebraska, and the Lincoln Airport, Star City has a lot to offer its visitors, and here’s a fieldguide.

Landmark Time

Would you guess Nebraska is home to the second tallest capitol building in the United States? If you don’t believe us, go check out the Nebraska State Capitol. A U.S. National Historic Landmark found on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the 400-foot "Tower on the Plains" features tours on the hour daily till 5 p.m.

With the Kids

If you’re hitting capital city with the family, there are plenty of ways to entertain the kids – and well, yourself, too. Be sure to ground a round of tickets to the Lincoln Children's Museum, or stroll the 10-acre Lincoln Children's Zoo.

And you’ll be remiss if you don’t see the Mueller Planetarium – a digital domed theater and all out awesome attraction in Morrill Hall at the UNC State Museum.

Catch a Show

If you’re into local music, Nebraska does not disappoint. Visit Duffy's Tavern, Zoo Bar, and Pla-Mor Ballroom for live music, or check the event calendar over at bigger venues like Pinnacle Bank Arena, Lied Center, and Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center – also at the University of Nebraska.

See a Game

If it’s sports you need, or maybe just hot dogs and adult beverages, check out basketball games at Pinnacle Bank Arena, baseball with the Lincoln Saltdogs, or see what the Nebraska Cornhuskers are up to while you’re in town.

Gardens Galore

Lincoln is also busting with gardens and nature centers for their green-thumbed friends out there. Visit the famous Sunken Gardens – or stroll through the Hamann Rose Garden, Veterans Memorial Garden, and the Pioneers Park Nature Center.
