The Union Pacific Railroad Museum is housed in the former 1903 Carnegie Library, a Beaux Arts-style building. Artifacts include photographs and documents that trace the development of the railroad and the American West. Explore the immersive "Building America" exhibit (featuring video-game technology), relive the height of passenger rail travel, and learn how Union Pacific and America's progress have been inextricably linked for 150 years. The museum is open Thursday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
