Hello dear blog readers!
This evening we are going to the Durham Museum in Omaha, Nebraska.
The Durham Museum was originally the city’s train station, called: Union Station. Union Station was built between 1929-1931, when it began serving railroad passengers. It continued as a train station until the early 1970’s, when it was closed. At that time it became the Western Heritage Museum, with a small regional display of artifacts. A large renovation took place in 1995, at which time the present Durham Museum opened its doors with a larger display of different modes of transportation, local historical displays, a gift shop and more.
The Durham is designed in the Art Deco fashion. Note the ceiling, wall and lighting designs in the photo below; all popular during the Art Deco period.
I will post more photos of the Durham Museum in the upcoming weeks.
Thanks for stopping by!
