Holiday time is here again, and that means that we’re looking forward to all kinds of fun, festive events. One of the biggest takes place in Omaha at the Durham Museum. The 2018 tree is already in place and getting ready for the lighting ceremony on November 24th. Keep reading for behind-the-scenes information on how it all comes together.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

The Durham Museum is located at 801 S 10th St, Omaha, NE 68108. If you’d like to attend the lighting, it’s happening on Friday, November 24th from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m., with the tree lights being turned on at 7:00 p.m. The tree will be on display through the end of the year, so you can still see the magic even if you can’t get to the lighting ceremony.
