Totally enjoyed the restored benches, ticket windows, trains, and vintage soda fountain along with the beautiful history of trains, related to Omaha. Exhibits are kid-friendly and so very interesting. Loved the antique cars and the amazing model train exhibit!

Great tour of Omahas' history through the well crafted displays and significant artifacts. Many memories are brought back to a native resident who has spent a lifetime in the city. You'll find items of interest, no matter what your generation.

There is no shuttle offered by the museum. You may be able to get shuttle service if you are staying at one of the nearby or downtown hotels. Ask at the front desk.
