SEWARD, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska National Guard's museum pieces will be moving from Lincoln to a new home in Seward.

The Nebraska Guard's adjutant general, Maj. Gen. Daryl Bohac, and Seward Mayor Josh Eickmeier announced the project on Monday. Bohac says the museum "will provide an opportunity to tell the rich history of the Nebraska National Guard."

The former National Guard armory in Seward will be turned into the museum by summer 2015. Officials say the project will be done in three phases.

The artifacts that will go on display are stored in the State Arsenal Museum at the old state fairgrounds in Lincoln.
