Workshops for WINTER

Log Cabin Holidays

Winter holidays have been celebrated in different ways for many years, including pioneers in Nebraska! This workshop will begin with a tour of our covered wagon and log cabin, before students have a chance to make their own pioneer holiday craft.

Holidays around the World

Experiences holidays from around the world right here in Omaha! Come to admire The Durham’s own 40-foot, fully decorated tree and learn how we fit this beautiful sight into the museum each year. Then, experience holidays and traditions from other countries and cultures using our Cultural Tree Display as well as classroom activities and a craft.

Platform and Play

All Aboard! What better way to spend a winter day than exploring The Durham Museum’s train cars? Following this trip back in time, students will visit the museum’s newest addition, The Platform, an interactive STEAM-based experience for learners of all ages.
