Big History, Miniature Collection

The Eloise Kruger Gallery of Miniatures consists of fine-scale contemporary art miniatures, sampling four centuries of interior design history in miniature. Unique to Nebraska, the collection blends craft, creativity and history. Eloise Kruger collected most of the miniatures in the collection and commissioned many of them.

The gallery is located on the 8th floor of Oldfather Hall, next door to room 827. Regular hours will be announced, and the gallery can be viewed by appointment by contacting Linda Kohlstaedt, collection manager.
