As the home to Omaha’s largest indoor Christmas tree, The Durham Museum’s Christmas at Union Station is one of the region’s most cherished traditions. Union Pacific Railroad began the tradition over 75 years ago by cutting down a Christmas tree from along its right of way in the Pacific Northwest and transporting it to Omaha’s Union Station. The tree greeted the thousands of passengers arriving on trains during the holiday season in the heyday of passenger rail service.
The Durham Museum, with the assistance of many community partners has continued the tradition by accepting donations of trees from local homeowners and putting it on display during the holiday season. Each year, Union Pacific employees cut down the tree and place it in The Durham’s Suzanne and Walter Scott Great Hall. Then the talented design team from Mangelsen’s decorates the tree.
