What’s new at Boys Town?
Published: April 08 2010
For over 90 years, Boys Town has been a beacon of hope for America’s children and families through its life-changing, leading-edge programs. Recently, construction sounds filled the air with a major remodelling of the Boys Town new and improved visitors center gift shop. When all the dust settled, Father Boes, standing amidst dozens of faculty, employees, students, and visitors blessed the new gift shop with a prayer.
Boys Town attractions are free. However, If you’d like to, you can purchase a self guided CD tour through the campus, museum, chapels and Father Flanagan’s Historic House. For a self guided tour we suggest a donation to the Home of $5.00 per vehicle. Also available for larger groups that would like a walking tour, we suggest a donation to the Home of $3.00 per person.
Also for your information, we have a café open Monday-Friday, for breakfast and lunch, and a stamp center in the Visitor’s Center, housing the Guiness Book of World Record’s largest ball of stamps!
The Visitor’s Center is open Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Saturday 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. and Sunday 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Our phone number is (402) 498-1141 or call us toll free at 1-800-625-1400. The Boys Town gift center is also online at www.BoysTownGiftShop.org.
