The Durham is a beautiful art deco former railroad station that had been restored. They have several special exhibits throughout the year. The current 1 is a Jim Henson exhibt. In addition, is a accurate overview of the city. We take our out of town guests to see Omaha history. They always enjoy. We are members and get our money's worth. Day tickets are still a good value for your money. The main area has several life size statues depicting passengers waiting to take a train. They decorate seasonal whuch us fun.The original soda fountain is delish! COVID safe masks, plastic shields etc. Enjoy

I enjoyed seeing the inside of the trains and going though the museum it is very nice. Also enjoy a good root beer float at the snack stand. If you enjoy trains and history you will enjoy this stop put it on the list. They also have a small gift shop!

It was an interesting museum. I learned a few interesting things about Omaha. Like others, I really enjoyed the Pulitzer photograph display. The Trans Mississippi Exposition exhibit was really interesting. I had no idea about that event, so I learnt something I didn't know, which isn't that the point of a museum Recommended.
