GRAND ISLAND, Neb. The votes are in and the Stuhr Museum has officially received a national award for its architecture.

The executive director says it's an honor to receive the 2017 Modernism in America Award from Docomomo. He enjoys how the building is a true mix of traditional and modern architecture.

One museum-goer says the architecture truly stands out from other museums.

"It has angles, it's really modern. I think it's just a really impressive building. Once you walk in you've got the fountains, the staircase. It's big, it's open. i just think it's wonderful," said Kristin Johnson of Grand Island.

The Stuhr is one out of only nine national winners.
