Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 virus, in the best interest of our visitors and staff, the Union Pacific Museum will suspend public access starting March 14, 2020. All programs and tours have been canceled until further notice. We are committed to the health, safety, and well-being of our visitors, volunteers, and staff. We look forward to seeing you when the danger has passed.
