Well worth the $10 price of admission. Amazing Art Deco building, filled with history of the railroads, Omaha, and (right now) Mangelson photography.

I enjoy when the Durham has events. I enjoy visiting the Durham and my kids do as well. I wish it were a little more interactive, but always a treat to visit. Highly recommend.

I am unable to answer your question. I was a visitor from out of state. I would check the museum website or call the museum.
