Given the youth of these gardens, they were very lovely. July is not the best month in the midwest to be visiting gardens, so it was no surprise that the rose garden looked a little tired, and the Victorian Garden looked hot and dry. My group was composed of Master Gardeners, so we understood the conditions ... and the fact... More

You must Visit this beautiful botanical paradise with its varied and creative gardens. Take the tram if unable to walk the whole place as it is quite large. Nice gift shop too.

One of my favorite places we visited in Omaha, as a fan of gardens. It was serene and beautiful. I particularly enjoyed the bird sanctuary. As we wandered further, near the herb garden we came across several wild turkeys.

It would have been nice to see the new conservatory not yet finished but otherwise lovely setup. Really liked the rose garden and children's garden.

Have visited here before. Very reasonable!! - Beautiful, beautiful gardens and the boys loved the train engines on the hill. We are truly looking forward to the Railroad Days event on July 12th and 13th

I enjoy my membership, and the activities and beautiful surroundings. A great place to enjoy nature, or just a quiet reflective stroll. The art displayed in the visitor center adds to the beauty of the place

I went as a part of my stay here in Omaha. I really enjoyed the relaxed feeling of the gardens and how it calmed everything around it

I especially like the garden that has the trains running thru it. There are several different theme gardens and one from our sister city in Japan

We loved walking through the gardens. It was a lot of fun with tons of beautiful plants. There are so many different areas to walk through. I would recommend going earlier in the day to give yourself plenty of time to walk around and enjoy it. We went right after a full day at the Omaha Zoo and couldn't enjoy... More

Not huge but very well maintained and lovely. Wonderful outdoor model train exhibit; new conservatory to open in October 2014. Reasonably priced. I suggest riding the tram to the back, then walk back through the gardens. Also visit the FULL-SIZE trains at adjoining Kenefick Park (no charge).
