Cozad Things to Do

  • Walk Around Old Downtown Cozad

    Since the museum is close to the center of Cozad, it's worthwhile taking a short walk along 8th Street and Main Street. There are numerous antique stores and a decent soup and sandwich cafe. The newer side of town is across the railroad tracks closer to I-80. Most of the older architecture downtown is from the early 20th century. There's an art...

  • Cozad Family Heirlooms

    There are some clothes and other items that belong to Henri's mother or relatives who have donated them to the museum. There's also a few miscellaneous collections of pipes and political buttons donated to the museum by local towns folk.

  • Other Sketches

    The collection of images I have here is but a small number of the many sketches that the museum as on display and on file. One could spent hours browsing the sketches.

There is one significant Henri oil painting portrait which is displayed on the second floor. Queen Marianna, second wife of King Philip IV of Spain, is basically...

  • Robert Henri Museum Building

    The original Cozad home has been structurally restored and given a coat of stucco to preserve it. Inside, antique furniture decorate, some authentic Cozad family, much of it only period pieces. The rambling house includes many small rooms that served as temporary living quarters for men who were homesteading property lots distributed by John Cozad....


    JUST LOOK AROUND AND GET A FEEL FOR THE TOWN. It is a nice town. Here is a small photo sampler of some buildings we saw around town.


    Here is the Cozad Movie Theater. On November 7th, 2005, we could have seen Walt Disney's "Chicken Little."
