The Durham Museum first opened its doors to the public in 1931 and has since then been considered one of the top attractions of Nebraska. The museum is currently housed in an Art Deco structure that once served as the state?s Union Station. The museum?s building was designed by none other than Gilbert Stanley Underwood, whose style can be most felt in the building?s impressive ceilings in the Suzzane & Walter Scott Great Hall.

The Durham Museum provides educational hands-on and interactive exhibits that teach visitors about the history of Omaha. Permanent exhibits in the museum include the Union Station Gallery, the Bishop Clarkson Community Gallery, the Baright Home & Family Gallery, the Byron Reed Gallery of Coins & Documents, the Omaha at Work Gallery, the Trick & Dick Davision Gallery at the museum?s track level, and the Fraser Stryker Trans-Mississippi Exposition Gallery.
