Search for the “Boys Town Visitor Tours" app from the App Store or Google Play. Launch the app and choose from several tours—a Village Tour of our campus, our award-winning Hall of History museum, Father Flanagan's Historic House, Dowd Chapel where Father Flanagan's tomb is located, or the Statues and Memorials that beautify our campus.

Athletic Competitions

In accordance with NSAA and CDC guidelines, attendance at all Boys Town home and away athletic competitions will be reserved to current Boys Town residents and essential personnel only.  Reducing spectators allows for social distancing and additional safety precautions.   This very important step to keep our athletes and residents safe.  Thanks for your understanding. We are working to provide a livestream of Varsity Football and Volleyball competitions so our employees, alumni, boosters, families of youth, and all fans can view the games live.  


New Brother Sister Statue"Brother Sister" Statue

Boys Town unveiled the "Brother Sister" statue June 6, 2017 in honor of our centennial year. Designed by Matthew Placzek, the statue represents that Boys Town serves both girls and boys. The piece, titled- "The Work Continues," is 7 feet tall and was crafted in Omaha. It was cast in bronze in Colorado before returning to the Boys Town campus. The statue it replaced is located in the Boys Town Hall of History. The public is encouraged to come see the statue anytime.
