The Cathedral was jaw dropping beautiful. Big also. My husband and I were so glad we took the time to visit this historical place.

We took a tour of the cathedral and it was fabulous! It has a fascinating history and contains many meaningful items. We enjoyed hearing about the architecture too.

I have grown up in the shadow of this marvelous building. It is the closest think Omaha has to the great cathedrals of Europe. Don't miss the small chapel on the left side of the alter.

I have been to this cathedral twice but neither time has been when they have had the flower festival. Would love to go next time they have it. The cathedral is gorgeous alone, can't imagine what it's like during the festival.

Like seeing the great cathedrals of Europe without any language translations required. The art in the stained glass window and murals throughout are amazing!

Beautiful Catholic Cathedral worth a stop. Situated on one of the highest spots in Omaha, the cathedral is stunning. It faces West (away from downtown) and the façade is best viewed in the afternoon. There is street parking and two small lots in front of the Cathedral.

This is a gorgeous cathedral with a wonderful sounding organ. There are plenty of Mass times to choose from. It is located in a wonderful old neighborhood easily accessible from Dodge Street. Sermon was to the point and not too long.

This italian-iberian inspired Roman Catholic cathedral is a grand space, a wonderland of masonry and mosaic, it is definitely an oasis of calm. the cathedral also has a really beautiful mechanical action pipe organ built by Martin Pasi, which has been featured on the American Public Media radio show Pipedreams.

Huge doom and nice music. Interesting architecture style. Worth 20 min trip, plus 20 min in the museum nearby.
