We went to Omaha to see the Henry Doorly Zoo. We were told to see the Durham Museum. It was well worth going to. It had a lot of interesting exhibits. Also it was very affordable. Good Museum would visit again.

Had a great visit when family came to town. The teens enjoyed it as much as the younger kids (and adults). The Spy exhibit was really well done! Spent lots of time in there! Be sure to try the Soda Fountain- good prices as well!!

The Durham museum is a great way to teach everyone the history of Omaha, and how it became. I go at least twice each year and I always learn something new. It's truly an amazing place.

There is no shuttle offered by the museum. You may be able to get shuttle service if you are staying at one of the nearby or downtown hotels. Ask at the front desk.
