Was slightly disappointed with the museum. The museum was beautiful in the architect point of view, but the displays could be more fun. They need to organize the displays in a circle so you can get the start to finish of history.

Both of the current exhibits, WW I and Thomas Mangelsen' photographs were amazing. The building exterior and 1st floor entry and interior are visually exquisite. Do not stop on the first floor. Take the stairs or elevator down to the see more exhibits.

This is a great museum that has train exhibits and several rooms of history of the Omaha and Nebraska area. They also have a diner that has hot dogs and ice cream selections with great atmosphere from back in the era.

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.
