Pierson Wildlife Museum

The museum is a unique, educational collection of big game trophies by Dr. Kenneth Pierson, who was the small town medical doctor in Neligh. It is an amazing display of taxidermy. Many are on the endangered species list now. These were bagged in the 1970s or before.

Location is a converted former church building, with an unique black rhino stained glass window.
