Council Bluffs, IA - Union Pacific's Railroad Museum is back open with a new look.
For the past month, workers transformed the first floor into a new exhibit called "Building America." The new display explores frontier life and the history of the Transcontinental Railroad. The museum even now has the distinction of being the first to use the X-Box gaming system to create an authentic experience for visitors.
"This is a very exciting time for us," said Brenda Mainwaring with the museum.
The exhibit features more than 200 artifacts with some even dating back to the 1860's.
