The mission of the Union Pacific Railroad Museum is to provide quality exhibits and educational programming to a diverse audience about the past, present, and future of America's premier railroad, Union Pacific, promoting a sense of connectedness showed through generations of people whose personal and family histories have been touched by the railroad. To accomplish this mission, the museum will preserve, protect, and promote the Union Pacific Railroad Historical Collection.
The Union Pacific Railroad Museum is located in downtown Council Bluffs, Iowa, in the beautiful and unique Beaux Arts-style building that formerly housed the Council Bluffs Carnegie Free Public Library. Find out more about our history as a museum!
