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.
