We were there during a special holiday event. By east coast standards not crowded, by Omaha standards, maybe. The standing exhibits were very well done. The seasonal exhibits and shows were so charming. Definitely worth going to.

Modern architecture and innovative design. If you like architecture and tall buildings, come visit this one. Has unique atrium design and is a compliment to the Omaha skyline.

Great location in Council Bluffs, its in old library building in downtown. Small but some interesting displays, really thought UP would have more items to display. Guess this is a work in progress. Anyway its worth a visit and hopefully they will expand.
