Available Workshops for summer
Build it Up!
Visit Omaha’s newest location to be named a National Historic Landmark, Omaha Union Station! Following a one-of-a-kind tour, enjoy building contests and activities with everything from Legos to pipe cleaners.
On the Move!
What do trains, cars, wagons and boats have in common? They not only move, but they help move objects and people too! Explore all things that move at The Durham Museum before finishing the workshop with a paper airplane STEM activity to explore modern transportation.
Have you wondered why The Durham Museum has something called a Soda Fountain? Explore unique concoctions and create your own after learning the fascinating history of soda fountains all around the country.
Do you have what it takes to survive? Take a step back into history to find out! Minotaur Mazes’ American Adventure takes visitors on an immersive, educational role-play adventure that asks people to conquer one great challenge: survive the year as one of the original Jamestown colonists. Sound easy? Think again! But don’t worry- you can beat the odds and determine your fate- it all depends on the choices you make… and a bit of luck.
Trinkets and Toys
Can you name the first toy that went to outer space? Learn the history behind some of our favorite toys in this fun and interactive workshop. Play everything from giant Jenga to pioneer and Native American games. You’ll even get to make a toy to take home with you!
