Through These Doors: The History of Omaha's Union Station

The construction of the Transcontinental Railroad garnered Omaha the attention and capability it required to become a major contender in American markets. As Omaha's population grew, so did the need for railway stations that could keep up with serving thousands of passengers and freight transactions daily.

This extraordinary exhibit provides visitors with the rich history of Union Pacific's 10 passenger depots in Omaha, including Union Station--currently the home for The Durham Museum.
