From the lobby you take an elevator down to the other displays. There is a large model train set up and running. There are several railcars that you get to walk through to get a feel for what travel would have been like in times past. We were delighted and frankly I wished I had a child with me to share it.
There is a audio/visual show that runs every few minutes and you can sit through it to learn about the history of Omaha. It was very interesting.
Our favorite, except for the ice cream soda was the recreated rooms. Its as if the walls have been cut off one side of homes and you get to see how a family would have lived starting in Victorian Times until the 50's. There is even a Indian Lodge that you get to walk through.
Another fascinating collection was a hugh collection of lunch boxes, yes, all those ones we took as kids whether it was the Lone Ranger, Power Ranger, Holly Hobby or Bionic Man. We spent quite a while reminscing at this display. Allow yourself several hours to enjoy this museum, it's well worth it.
