Friday, Sept. 1: Bison Night! (5-7 pm)

The Union Pacific Railroad Museum’s Sept. 1 family night is all about bison, a critical natural resource in the American West. Play a bone slide game, touch a bison hide and join our fashion show by showing off your bison purse or western look. Enjoy a bison puppet show hosted by the Council Bluffs Public Library and activities provided by Nebraska’s Wildlife Safari Park!

Repeat guests should bring their Family Night 2017 punch card and check in upon arrival. Individuals who get their card stamped at least seven times this year will eligible for a six-person trip aboard the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad in Boone, Iowa. The special drawing for the trip will occur at the December 2017 family night. You must be present to win.

Admission is free to all family nights. Donations are gladly accepted.

Family Nights at the Museum are held the first Friday of every month from 5-7 p.m. In addition to providing extended hours for visitors to access the Museum’s range of interactive displays on railroading and the history of the west, each family night also features a unique arts or learning opportunity that is fun for the entire family. Next month’s Family Night is Oct. 6 and features the theme, “¡Todos a Bordo! Hispanic Heritage Night at the Museum.”
