10:00 am – 4:00 pm: Holiday Cultural Trees Display
A holiday favorite returns to The Durham’s galleries during Christmas at Union Station. The display is one of the enduring fixtures of the season and showcases how cultures from around the world celebrate the holiday season. Each tree is decorated by a local Omaha cultural group and is accompanied by interpretative text explaining the meaning behind the various decorations and unique traditions of each culture.
10:00 am – 4:00 pm: Season’s Greetings, Omaha!
The Durham has partnered with six local organizations this season to unwrap the joys their programs bring to the holidays. In festive displays, these institutions (El Museo Latino, Lauritzen Gardens, The Omaha Symphony, The Rose Theater, The Omaha Community Playhouse and the Omaha Children’s Museum) will present tableaus of their programming and decoration for guests to discover. We hope this inspires visits to their sites and more!
10:30 am - Noon & 1-3 pm: Here comes santa claus…
Our brand new, reimagined socially distanced Santa experience will allow guests to still see Santa in-person while keeping kids and the jolly old elf himself safe.
