    Visit: The Durham Museum, 801 S 10th St, Omaha, NE 68108, USA

    Union Pacific’s $3.5 million Union Station was designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood as one of the nation’s first art deco train stations. The station opened in 1931 and was immediately heralded as an architectural gem. Union Station was at its peak during World War II, when more than 10,000 passengers passed through each day. Today, this rare jewel has been transformed from top to bottom into one of the nation’s most vibrant and beautiful hands-on museums. The museum is named in honor of Omaha philanthropists Margre and Charles Durham, who played an instrumental role in restoring the facility. In 2016, the building was declared a National Historic Landmark.

    The Durham Museum is proud to serve as a steward of our region’s heritage. The museum provides countless opportunities to discover Omaha’s history. After stepping back in time with the life-like sculptures and beautifully restored architecture of the Suzanne and Walter Scott Great Hall, visitors can explore our extensive permanent galleries, which brilliantly capture the remarkable history of our region.

    This is a must visit while in Omaha. The train station has so much history and it easy to feel what it was like in the early years.

    While not the most *exciting* stop in Omaha, the museum is worth the trip, if only to take a momentary step back in time. The echoed halls of the train station are your first stop, and the retro appeal extends to the ticket-booth turned gift...More

    The trolley tours are informative, educational, and fun. ALL of them are great with volunteers who are very knowledgeable. The museum itself is well maintained, excellent exhibits and many traveling exhibits that are well worth your time.

    The Durham Museum is a wonderful repository of Nebraska history, particularly of the City of Omaha. It is also a great place for those interested in railroad history, mostly relating to the Union Pacific in it's early days. There are a couple of rail cars...More
