Mission Statement: To preserve and promote the historic and cultural heritage of the South Omaha community.
Vision Statement: The South Omaha Museum will be the leader in presenting programs and exhibits which connect people with the diverse experience of the area.
Programs include exhibits, workshops, lecture series, continuing education, and historic tours. A permanent exhibit will showcase the ethnic and economic development of South Omaha, especially the impact of the livestock and meat-packing industry whose rapid growth resulted in the title of "The Magic City."
The museum's collection maintained and curated by its founder Gary Kastrick is a living legacy of South Omaha's contribution to the rich tapestry of ethnic neighborhoods, thriving small businesses, and memorable characters.--David Catalan
