Visitor Tips and News About Johnny Carson Gallery
This Elkhorn Valley Museum has a display dedicated to Norfolk native Johnny Carson and a variety of other displays relating to the town's history. It's a newer facility and is a good stop for Johnny Carson fans, but I don't know much else about it. There is also a Johnny Carson theater and I'm pretty sure you can visit the house Johnny grew up in.[Nicole, 07/17/2006]
