Though Union Pacific's founding father, President Abraham Lincoln, did not live to see it completed, the spirit of progress, innovation and American unity the transcontinental railroad spurred is an enduring part of America's history. At the Union Pacific Railroad Museum, you can explore more than 150 years of that history through unique artifacts, precious photos and several interactive digital displays. "We really enjoyed our visit. The displays were so well done & informative. There was something for everyone's interest." - Glennda & Peter from Sydney, Australia "All the antiques were really neat. My favorite parts of the tour were the games, dine-in car cafes & hearing about what Lincoln did for the railway." - Amy from Omaha, Nebraska Union Pacific Railroad Museum is a donation-based museum, so admission is always free.
