I was very impressed with this museum and thrilled that there was a traveling Downton Abbey costume exhibit during my visit. The staff that I encountered was very friendly, and the location was beautiful. I enjoyed walking through the passenger train on site as well. Great value for the price!

The focal point of the Durham Museum, formerly known as the Durham Western Heritage Museum, is the Main Waiting Room, currently the Suzanne and Walter Scott Great Hall, which is 160 feet by 72 feet and spanned by a 60-foot-high ceiling of sculptured plaster with painted gold and silver leaf trim, 10 Cathedral-like plate glass windows, patterned terrazzo floor, columns of blue Belgian marble and a wainscotting of black Belgian marble. If that isn't enough, the Great Hall is lighted by six immense chandeliers, each 13 feet tall and five feet in diameter, and suspended 20 feet from the ceiling. Located at 801 South 10th Street in downtown Omaha, Nebraska, the museum is dedicated to preserving and displaying the history of the United States' western region. It is housed in Omaha's former Union Station, an art deco building that was constructed in 1931 and once was one of the busiest train stations in the United States. At its peak, 64 passenger trails and 10,000 passengers utilized the facility. The last passenger trail departed in 1971. The museum opened in 1975, then underwent a $22 million renovation in 1995 and 1996 that was largely funded by Charles and Margre Durham. Today, the museum is open from 10 to 4 Tuesday through Sunday. Current exhibits include Dressing the Abbey, a costume exhibition highlighting fashion fro the epic TV drama Downton Abbey; Theater Row, highlighting stage and screen in early 20th century Omaha; On the Homefront: Nebraska and World War II; Bekins Moving and Storage: Telling the story of one of Omaha's great companies, featuring a restored 1922 Mack flatbed truck; 1890 Union Pacific locomotive; 1924 Pullman Observation Car; 1949 Southern Pacific Lounge Car; 1956 Union Pacific Pullman Sleeper Car; Buffett Grocery Store, a replica of the original Buffett Grocery Store that opened in 1915 in Omaha's Dundee neighborhood; and a Benson Street Car, which took passengers through the neighborhoods of Omaha in the 1940s. Finally, take time to visit the Byron Reed Gallery to see the vast collection of coins, documents, books, maps and other items of great historical importance that the famous Omaha real estate agent put together in the late 19th century. See the 1804 dollar, Colonial coins, coins from Imperial Rome, Ancient Greece and Egypt, Confederate currency and letters written by George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Henry Clay, U.S. Grant, even Frederick The Great and Robespierre. In 2016, it was designated as a National Historic Landmark.

Great special exhibit of Downton Abby costumes. The Root Beer Float at the Soda Fountain is the best anywhere.

The Durham History Museum is a must-visit in Omaha! In addition to the ongoing exhibits, the museum hosts a variety of visiting exhibits, so check their website to see what upcoming events and/or displays may be of interest to you!! I personally enjoyed climbing in the cockpit of the steam engine and then starting at the other end of the train and going through the caboose and the various cars as they looked in the 1940s and 1950s during the glory days of train travel. The talking statues give interesting lessons about the types of people that travelled through this former Union Station, especially the thousands of military personnel off to fight during WW2. Other exhibits cover various aspects of U.S. history, as well as some fascinating looks into Native American culture. The architecture of the building itself is fascinating. There was a neat souvenir shop and a working diner/malt shoppe with a counter and stools along with tables and chairs out front!

This place was neat. We went for the Dinosaur experience which quite frankly was probably not worth it alone (this will depend on what you are looking for- my 9 year old loved it). But the museum is much more than just that exhibit and we probably spent 3 hours, so it was definitely a home run. With the Byron Reed collection and the historical exhibits and Children activities, there’s something for everyone if you are the type of traveler who goes to museums. Easy to get to and free easy parking and close to downtown.
