The Durham Western Heritage Museum is one of Omaha's finest representations of art deco.  Originally built as a Union Pacific Railroad passenger station, the building was completely restored over the last decade.

The Joslyn Art Museum was presented as a gift to the city of Omaha in 1931 by Sara Joslyn.
Although a representation of many styles, the predominant theme is deco.
