We visited the Union Pacific Railroad Museum because the weather was really cold and we needed an indoor activity. All three of my children thoroughly enjoyed it. I really had a great time also. You can't beat the quality of this museum for the fact that it is virtually free. (Donation suggested) the guides were helpful and extremely knowledgable. Would return again!

Our entire family from teens through geros thoroughly enjoyed the massive display and history about the Union Pacific Co. The museum is located in a historic area of Omaha that has many other interesting attractions and resturants nearby.

Very interesting (free) exhibit. They have a lot of items connecting President Abraham Lincoln and General Grenville Dodge, the builder of the Union Pacific Railroad, Some of the interactive exhibits need to work better. Interesting for all ages.

We enjoyed visiting with railway retirees who are volunteering there. My husband and I loved the historical side. I started to whip through the area talking about how modern trains are run-- then I got caught up in all the interesting info and read ever display board. Do Not Miss taking the free audio guide--it is wonderful! Learned so much..
