America Travels by Rail

This unique exhibit will bring to life the travel and destinations Americans have enjoyed from the 1930s until passenger service transferred to Amtrak in 1971.

The Lincoln Collection

Our Lincoln collection memorializes and celebrates the life of President Abraham Lincoln, who – upon signing the Pacific Railway Act – became Union Pacific's founding father, forever connecting and uniting the nation.

Building America

Since opening in the Council Bluffs Carnegie Library in 2003, the Union Pacific Railroad Museum's first floor has been dedicated to sharing the experience of building the Transcontinental Railroad. The current exhibit takes the telling of this story to an entirely new level. With an immersive design and cutting-edge technology, visitors will be transported to the 1860s as they learn about frontier life, the monumental work required to construct the railroad and the communities that were created along its route.
