I come to Omaha a few times a year on business but haven't had a chance to see Winter Quarters until today. I got off my flight and at the last minute, decided to look it up and head there before I headed to my hotel for a week long business trip. It was such a great way to start... More

This was my first stop after landing in Omaha and I was excited to see the museum and learn about the Mormon pioneers. The tour starts off with a movie, and the two missionary young ladies who led my tour followed the movie with a very Mormon religious interpretation. I understand that religion was the basis for everything that happened,... More

This hidden Omaha gem has a wonderful exhibit of what the Mormons went through on their pilgrimage to Utah. Their time in Omaha history was brief, but valuable. Ad laid the foundation for the town of Florence that later became part of Omaha as the city grew up around it.

This cometary is a MUST SEE when visiting Omaha. Make sure you take time too tour the visitor center across the street. Tours are conducted by very knowledgable young adults. That can easily answer all your questions.

If your family immigrated across the US during pioneer days this is an interesting place to visit due to its sculpture and setting. While commemorates the Mormon migration, it's just as relevant if you're not a LDS member. The nearby Mormon Trails Museum tells their story if you're interested.

This cemetery is a humbling reminder of a people who were driven to search for a place to live in religious freedom. The LDS temple and visitor center that surround this site are very well taken care of and enjoyable to walk around and visit. Such a nice little refuge in a not so nice part of town. The plaques...

Visiting this cemetery and the visitors center, across the street, was a wonderful addition to our summer adventure. This was one of 2 historic Latter-day Saint sights we visited this summer and it was both educational and spiritual. To sit and ponder what these pioneers endured, is humbling.

A unique look at history with a sobering view of what life and death must have been like back then...But a very nice memorial to those who suffered during that time period. Very peaceful area with unique headstones and statues.

The museum across from the cemetery is fascinating. Filled with interesting exhibits, maps, dioramas, memorabilia and even a hand-cart, it helped me fill in some of the gaps of my own Mormon roots. However, if you are not of the LDS faith, or are not interested in becoming Mormon, be aware that this museum is run primarily as a missionary... More

We didn't come to town for this but we got directions from the desk at our hotel (Holiday Inn Express, Cherry Hills). It is a nice place to visit and learn about some history.
