Durham Museum, Omaha Reviews - Write a Review
Very nice displays. You can get a feel for the history of Omaha. There are some interactive displays. I really enjoy looking at the photos and comparing them to current views. I would like to see some film of Union Station during it's hey day. I think that would give a better idea of how important Omaha was in the Transcontinental rail network.
If you want to learn more about the history of Omaha and how railroads made a difference in transporting goods and materials through out the US including Nebraska, then is a place to visit. It's a kid and family friend place and they have interesting exhibitions going on. I love the art deco and that they have a mini dine/candy and pop store inside. I also like how they have a display train that you can walk through the rail cars and see the train decor has changed through the decades. Will have to pay another visit soon!!
I enjoyed visiting The Durham Museum and learning about the early days of Omaha. The museum is located in the lower level of Union Station; which is a beautiful building just by itself and worth seeing. My admission price was $11.00. I purchased a hot dog lunch at the original cafe inside Union Station. It was not very good but only cost around $5.00. I would suggest you eat ahead of time. I leisurely walked around and spent a couple of hours. You could tour the museum faster and still enjoy it. I didn't read everything, so it could also take longer. You have the ability to roam freely at your own pace. They have exhibits from early living through modern times. Covered wagons, a real train to walk through, and vintage vehicles are also on display.
I would definitely recommend stopping by the Durham Museum because there is something here for everyone. There are old train cars you can walk through, historical exhibits of life in Nebraska from the 1700's until now, tons of historical paraphernalia, and a cool temporary exhibit called Zoom. Would be great for kids, but also really interesting for adults too.
Such a cool museum. It felt like I was stepping into another era. A super immersive and informative experience. I loved being able to board the train.
