Old Union Pacific Station restored

Brought back old memories having gone to Union Station as a child. They did a wonderful job of restoration.

The building itself is amazing! Be sure to take in the details on the ceilings as well. The train depot is fun and feels like stepping back in time to a more golden era. The traveling Egyptian exhibit was interesting , but smaller than I expected. The photographs and other history is worth checking out especially if you have any... More

The Durham Museum is in the restored railroad station in Omaha and I highly recommend it for anyone visiting Omaha! In addition to railroad Pullman train complete with various cars, the Museum also provides an interesting look at our past and the way many of our forefathers lived and traveled.

With a revolving seasonal display on a constant rotation, there is always something new to see throughout the year. Check back often to see something different year after year.

It was fun learning about the Union Pacific railroads, but the Lost Egypt was sort of disappointing.

This interesting museum is beautifully housed in an old train station. That alone is enough to bring you to see. Also...your kids will enjoy walking through the train cars on the lower level. The gift shop is nicely stocked and the working soda foundation is a nice touch.

I have lived in Nebraska my entire life and for whatever reason never got around to visiting the Durham. This weekend the hubby guy and I decided to do something different for the weekend and headed out for the day. This was our first stop on our day out and I am so very glad we went. This museum is...

This is the Coolest old train station we've ever seen! They have several exhibits throughout the year that are awesome. This place is huge with a full size passenger train to walk through and it's on full size train tracks. This is a great place to take the family. They have a small model train for the children to look... More

Beautiful Christmas decorations. I loved the tree and watching a group of school children learn about the museum and traditions. I even learned how they got the huge tree into the museum. The soda fountain was my favorite as was the gift store. A lot of childhood memories came flooding back to me. Walking through the train...I could imagine myself... More
