Even this early in the Spring, there were some beautiful flowers on the grounds. The technicians working on getting the model trains to run beginning next weekend were kind enough to turn them on for a few minutes so we could watch. The conservatory was awesome, and we loved the Lego display! Can't believe I've never made time to visit... More

My first visit with my mom. We had a great time taking pictures of plants and flowers. They have both Tropical and Temperate Plant Rooms.

It's halfway through March. Trees and bushes are barely starting to bud. If Spring is actually springing, it's very, very quietly. When my husband suggested we go to Lauritzen Gardens, I thought it would be a waste of time, but since our last visit, they've built a new conservatory, and let me tell you, it was worth the hour drive...

This is one of Omaha's true gems. During the spring and summer, the gardens just flourish with beauty, but they do a really good job of having exhibits all year round, like the poinsettia display around Christmas. Now through April 26th, the have a creative Legos display, with a few dozen plants and animals done in Legos throughout the gardens.... More

We went from never having gone to being members in a month! Love the new conservatory and how it is set up. We did walk the grounds, which are quiet and serene in the winter months. Can't wait for the weather to warm up sow can see all the grounds alive in color (and the garden railroad in action!). The... More

You can take a tram tour which is nice and informative. They take you up to the overlook where they have 2 old locomotives. These are neat. The gardens are beautiful. If you do not take the tram be ready for lots of walking. This place is big! Nice gift shop area too! They are also adding some greenhouses, not... More

With the new addition, it's more of a must see than ever! The music in the summer/fall is my fav and the special indoor events...any time of year it's a magical place. This place is very special, please stop by and slow down and warm up, if needed!

A wonderful break in the urban atmosphere. A unique setting on the bluffs overlooking the river. One of the few places I've been where the parking lot view is worth the drive.

We saw the Marjorie K. Conservar from I80 and decided to visit on a sunny windy winter afternoon. The Water features and well designed glass house are fun to roam and we enjoyed taking photos of the interesting plants. We hiked the Gardens and even without blooms it was an enjoyable walk. As an added bonus we got to see... More

I have been a member of the Garden for many years. It is a jewel and is somewhere I always take visitors. With the new greenhouses the Garden is wonderful in the winter as well as in spring, summer, and fall. Not to be missed if you are a plant lover.
