ABOUT THE PLATFORM
Located on the lower level of the museum on what was originally track one in the Union Station terminal, The Platform is an interactive STEAM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) experience for learners of all ages. The area features an industrial, workshop-like aesthetic, with a focus on creating, building and innovating. The Platform is a flexible, ever-evolving space. Current features include a brick building wall, magnetic wall with marble tube run, train table, oversized maps of Omaha neighborhoods and counter height tables that look out onto the active railyard.
The launch of The Platform was made possible by a $20,000 gift from U.S. Bank’s Community Possible initiative.
