Although local technology museums around the world can indeed be hidden treasures, the movie treats this as a humorous incident showing the dullness of Nebraska. Of course, the filmmakers are being unfair not just to the social and cultural life in Lincoln and environs in general, but specifically to its wonderful museums, including the Sheldon Museum of Art and its Philip-Johnson-designed-gallery.at the University of Nebraska, and the Museum of Nebraska History. However, Annals readers will be more concerned if the value of the Woods Museum aside the filmmakers are giving short shrift to technological history in this important region. The answer, of course, is yes.
