Come and explore more than 150 years of America’s largest railroad at the Union Pacific Railroad Museum! The Union Pacific Railroad Museum’s mission is to promote a sense of connectedness that’s shared by generations of people whose personal and family histories have been touched by the railroad.
This year the Union Pacific Railroad Museum is featuring the rich history between the military and the railroads in every American conflict since the U.S. Civil War in the "Wheels of War," exhibit. Learn about the advantage given to the North by its railroad network, discover that more than 6,000,000 soldiers passed through the special Canteen in North Platte, Nebraska, and see how Union Pacific is still employing and recognizing veterans today! Visitors can also view the "Working on the Railroad" exhibit; an up close and personal experience with modern Union Pacific operations!
