This place was awesome! Parking was right outside the entrance. The view from the entrance was trains, tracks and more trains and tracks. The hall was expansive. The realization was amazing. We could picture ourselves waiting for a train in this station. Seats with life...More

A great place for young or old. Lots of train exhibits and history for younger kids. Much Omaha history for adults. Remembering things like the old stockyards is a special exhibit.

We visited the museum over labor Day weekend with our son and grandson. A great place for kids especially the trains and the trolley hands on! We enjoyed the special exhibits on WWI and the photographs of Tom Mangelson.

Thank you for visiting and leaving a kind review! Can’t help but notice you only gave us one star out of five. Can you elaborate? Thank you!

The Durham Museum takes you to a time your parents or grandparents might have traveled through. So authentic. You fell as though you are living that era. I could close my eyes and picture the long dresses, the trunks, the top hats etc. Loved it.

Omaha’s old Union Station is preserved wonderfully and is very festive for the holidays. Biggest public Christmas tree in town, at 40’ and there are several small trees decorated by various ethnic groups. It’s easy to imagine yourself having just arrived and disembarked from a...More

I am unable to answer your question. I was a visitor from out of state. I would check the museum website or call the museum.
