The Durham Museum

The Durham is located at the south end of the historic Old Market. Omaha's "Union Station" offers a magnificent atmosphere featuring 65-foot ceilings and the beautiful restoration of the original Art Deco architecture. The Durham has all the “wow” you need to create a memorable event for your guests. In addition, you may choose from a wide variety of preferred caterers and vendors which provides flexibility for you in selection and pricing.


Just walk in and you'll be amazed! The space is stunning. We had a small wedding (due to COVID) and used The Durham for both the wedding ceremony and reception. Hannah was so helpful in working with us to find the best options of how to use the space. She was by far the most attentive vendor I worked with and was extremely fast with replying to my emailed questions. That was so reassuring for this stressed out bride.” – Kayla H (10/10/2020)

“The Durham Museum was so accommodating during the final weeks leading up to our wedding! They helped us plan how to socially distance our guests while still maintaining our original ideas. They were very professional and so so so helpful! Our wedding day couldn’t have happened without the help of the Durham staff. They are so lovely to work with and we are so thankful for their help and patience during this uncertain time of the pandemic!” – Allison M (9/12/2020)

“My wife and I fell in love with the Durham museum! We got married at this wonderful location on 10/11/19 and it was an experience unlike any other. Hannah and her team were amazing, communicative, and easy to work with. Our guests were so impressed with the Durham as well. If you happen to be looking for somewhere you can hold a wedding and reception - look no further as the Durham truly is a memorable location. Thank you!!” – Eliezar V (10/11/2019)

“We knew the Durham was the perfect location for our ceremony and reception when we walked in for our first visit. The staff we worked with was knowledgeable and friendly, which made the planning a breeze. Our guests loved being able to walk through the museum during the cocktail hour and getting treats from the Soda Shoppe for dessert. Because the building itself is so beautiful, we didn't need to have any additional decorations and still achieved the art deco/vintage look we were going for. I would absolutely recommend this location, it is gorgeous, has phenomenal staff, and something for all your guests to enjoy.” – Claire C (10/5/2019)

“Growing up, the Durham Museum has always been one of my family's favorite attractions in Omaha. As soon as I got engaged, I knew the Durham was my ideal wedding venue- downtown, historic and a unique setting; this venue couldn't be more perfect for our wedding. This art deco architectural wonder is a breathtaking space that already has so much detail and beauty; there really isn't much decorating needed. The staff were helpful and easy to communicate with from day one. We had our ceremony in the West End and our reception in the Great Hall. The space is so large and versatile, there are various layout options. We, as well as our guests, were completely mesmerized by how beautiful our wedding looked against such a stunning backdrop. The Durham Museum perfectly made our Winter Wonderland- Holiday Sparkle wedding dream a reality! Thank you!” – Erin R (12/29/2018)
