AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Omaha’s Union Station, an art deco structure built in 1929, is home to the Durham, once known as the Western Heritage Museum. But now science, industry and fine art have been added to the collection, which was originally focused solely on the vibrant history of Omaha. Of course, that includes the exploration of Lewis & Clark, the Mormon and Oregon trails, the railroads and stockyards, and so much more. Inside this interactive museum, you can climb on locomotives, learn a thing or two at an old schoolhouse, and pack a wagon for heading out across the prairie along the Oregon Trail. Then relax after your hard work over a phosphate or chocolate sundae from an old-fashioned soda fountain.
