We visited today, the Christmas decorations and the poinsettia tree were beautiful. The entertainment, Master Singers from a Lincoln High School were wonderful.

We were here with friends on a dreary December day and it was a welcome relief to see some green. The poinsettia displays were very colorful, the train layouts fun to watch and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We would definitely return. You won't be disappointed.

My first visit to this wonderful local Omaha attraction took place this fall - I can't believe I've been missing it! I attended an outdoor concert with dear friends and would return in a heartbeat. I can't think of a better place for a concert, especially for such an engaged audience. I walked by the lovely gift store and will... More

We took my Mother to see the Poinsettia Tree display. (It is 20 ft tall) It is beautiful and has a model train running on tracks around the room. There are over 20 different varieties of poinsettia on display. Then we went to the new conservatory which is amazing.

The Lauritzen Gardens are wonderful. The area is so nice, there are times of the year when they had\ve car shows,etc. on the grounds and it is spectacular. The Union Pacific park is right next door, a good chance to see real steam locomotives up close.

If you love floral decorations at Christmas don't miss the large Pointsettia tree at Lauritzen Gardens. This garden with the new conservatory just gets better with time. A few years ago we were lucky enough to attend a Christmas party held here. What a beautiful venue for holiday parties. Visit any time of year and for those who can't walk... More

Very beautiful place to visit and learn about flora and fauna OR you can just enjoy the scenery. There is a tram to take a quicker trip around the property with a friendly and informative driver, Tony. There is a large model train exhibit where most all the buildings are built with leaves, sticks, and nuts! Very very cool -... More

These gardens are not hard to get to but not overly crowded. During the growing season they are always well-maintained with beautiful plants. Year-round there's always something going on such as during the Christmas season there is the most beautiful poinsettia display and tree that I have ever seen.
