Beautiful architecture blends with memories of a time gone by at The Durham Museum. Making its home in one of Omaha’s most unique treasures, Union Station, The Durham Museum provides a fascinating look at the history of the region. Through our affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution and strong ties with the Library of Congress, National Archives, Chicago’s Field Museum and others, we also offer a number of temporary exhibits covering subjects ranging from history and culture, to science and industry.
