The Kearney Archway over Interstate 80 is set to reopen to visitors on June 1st as the state relaxes directed health measures. Marketing Coordinator Mark Foradori said the museum staff is excited to be able to share Nebraska’s history with visitors once again.

“We’re just happy to be open and tell the story about the history of Nebraska,” Foradori said. “I think that's the important thing that we do and we're happy to get back to it.”

Foradori said all employees and volunteers working at the Archway will be required to wear masks, and their health situations will be monitored. The Archway’s large square footage makes it ideal for social distancing, Foradori said. The maximum capacity is around 3000 people, and Fadori said even on the archway’s busiest days they don’t even come close to hitting that number.
