The Bayard Depot Museum is the only historical museum in Bayard, Nebraska. With a history spanning more than 130 years, the Bayard area lays claim to a fascinating and diverse past. From the early settlers in the 1880's, to the influx of German-Russian, Greek, and Mexican peoples in the early 20th century, the Bayard Depot Museum holds a treasure for everyone.
Housed in the historic Burlington Northern Railroad Depot, the museum is open daily from Memorial Day through the end of September. Museum activities are funded by memberships, donations, and fundraisers. Each fall, the museum hosts the annual Sip & Sample, a wine and beer tasting event featuring Nebraska made beer and wine. The Museum also supports other activities and organizations in the community, as approved by the board of directors.
