this is amazing how it blends in with the buildings, you will miss some of it if you drive by. The pieces are scattered around. the nice display in the park catches your attention then you start noticing things around surrounding buildings or along the street.

We came across this monument while heading downtown to another destination in Omaha. We had not seen anything about it in any brochures on Omaha. The monument is a wagon train heading west. It stretches over a good piece of downtown property to give a feel for the length of a wagon train. There are various aged pioneers depicted, and... More

These statues done up in bronze are in a downtown area where business towers are located. These are some of the largest and most spectacular bronze statues we have seen anywhere in the world. In one park like area they have an entire wagon train featuring wagons, men, women, children, dogs, horses and donkeys. In one example a wagon is... More

The statues were nicely done. We were just passing through and it was a quick walk to get out and stretch our legs. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it though.

We stopped at this during our drive through Omaha. That statues were absolutely beautiful with a lot of detail. We spent some time getting some pictures and hanging out in the park. A quick stop but worth it.

We were driving to the pedestrian bridge when we saw these sculptures and I am SO glad we didn't miss them! They are easily my favorite I've seen on our road trip (of 12 states). They were so realistic I felt odd touching one of the people. They captured women, men, and children in all different manners you would imagine... More

I had a bit of time on my business trip and this was just a few blocks away from my hotel. The statues were quite impressive, and I really liked the movement from block to block.

This is truly a wonderful recognition to the courage of the pioneers who traveled across this great country to make a better life for themselves. It was not an easy trek to make and not all made it to the end. This is a portrayal of those that did and their courage and determination. The sculptures are wonderfully done and... More

The sculptures flow thru multiple blocks of downtown Omaha...amazingly lifelike..one needs to walk the sculpture trail..like the way a buffalo appears to come out of a building wall. Each time we saw more of the sculptures. First time we missed the aerial sculptures of geese in flight..the light plays on the sculptures at different times of day and season. Great... More
