The Minden Opera House

Our mission is to entertain the public, inspire future generations, and promote the arts in a majestic venue.

Constructed in 1891, this historical tribute to area arts and culture was completely renovated in 1999-2000 to serve as an attractive community center for theatrical productions, conferences, weddings, and much more. The Kearney County Community Foundation worked for several years on the planning and completion of the project which was supported totally by grants and donations and owns the 119 year old opera house. The Minden Opera House Board was elected from organizations in the community to operate the facility. Memorial Day weekend of 2000 marked the grand opening of the beautifully renovated Minden Opera House.
