I wrote a comment that is under Railswest Park. Sorry! The UP museum is the one that is renovated and high tech. Informative for adults and hands on for kids. The caboose is fun for kids to go on.

Nicely done. Areas for kids to climb around. Educational and artistically presented. Historically presented on railroad's importance to the area.

If you want to find out about Omaha’s History then go here. There are a lot of pictures and hands on exhibits about Omaha’s history. They do a lot of family friendly events here ranging from the Christmas Tree lighting to Rail Days. This is one of Omaha best places to go to.

My kids ages 6 and 10 really liked the train museum. There is a suggested donation for an entrance fee. There are interactive things to do. A great photo op with a train. The staff was all very helpful and friendly. They have guided and unguided tours. It is worth the stop.

This museum was a little hard to find and parking was a problem, but we enjoyed it once we were inside. It had a lot of old firearms and the contents of Lincoln's funeral car plus some items Lincoln had donated from his law office. We had heard about it at the Visitors' Center in Omaha and came over after seeing the Durham Museum. I don't think small children would like it.
