About

The Durham Museum makes its home in the National Historic Landmark of Omaha's beautiful art deco Union Station. The museum houses an extraordinary array of permanent exhibits including restored train cars, 1940s store fronts, numerous artifacts showing the history of the region, and the Byron Reed collection which includes some of the world’s rarest coins and documents. There are also impressive traveling exhibits through The Durham’s affiliation with the Smithsonian and close ties with the Library of Congress, National Archives and Chicago’s Field Museum. During your stay, be sure to stop by the authentic soda fountain and enjoy a phosphate or malt.
