This was a beautiful 19th century home built by General Crook, one of the few generals to deal fairly with the Indians. I loved the furnishings and the stories the wonderful docents told us.

We found this on the web as we were traveling home from Lincoln. When we first pulled up we thought we were in the wrong place, as it is in the middle of a community college campus. We found out that a lot of the old military buildings an barracks had been remodeled to serve as a college, but the... More

I had never been here, and would not have come, save for the Nebraska Passport program. Lovely, historic home! Well kept. Worth a visit.

This is a very well preserved house of the Military Commander of the Platte. The tour was self guided using a recording device. The tour was very well organized with great narration from the staff. We really enjoyed the visit. This is primarily of interest to adults.

This museum never disappoints us and our recent visit was no exception. The new visit about prohibition and bootlegging in the Omaha area is rich with artifacts, interactive audio, and a wealth of information. I don't remember an admission charge, but they seem to have one now.

The Museum is neat. This is something that may only take 30 minutes or an hour. We visit during Railroad Days.

We enjoyed this little bit of history. If the walls could talk, I am sure it would tell us all the secrets and things that were missed in the tour.

The General Crook house is so named because he was the first occupant of the house. The original design called for this house to be built for $10,000 but the frugal General Crook was able to get it done for around $7300. The interior has been restored beautifully and one can almost feel like it is the 1870's. The audio... More

This is an interesting historical site - the Victorian wallpaper and textiles are especially interesting. The curator is exceptionally knowledgable in all aspects of the period so talking to him was probably the best part. It's not a spectacular house by any means but it does give one a good sense of what upper middle class life was like during... More
