Our daughter had always encouraged us to visit Lauritzen Gardens as she and her family have enjoyed their visits there for years. They have three kids ages 5 - 9 and they love the various family oriented displays throughout the year. So on New Years Eve morning another couple and we decided to check out the Poinsettia Show. Turned out... More

We try to visit Lauritzen Gardens at least once per year. The model railroad garden is my son's favorite. Beautiful landscaping, lots of events for every taste and an easy walking trail. The trail can take some effort if you walk the whole thing especially on a hot day. But you can do as much as you like. The new... More

Really glad to see a place like this in Omaha. Nice to walk around and calm your inner peace here. Would be good to have a yearly pass and come here when the stress level is very high. A top place to see while in Omaha.

Although we previously lived in Omaha, we had never visited Lauritzen Gardens ever. While visiting family, we decided to see the Christmas Poinsetta Display on our way to the airport. What a terrific experience. A delightful Holiday atmosphere, with thousands of Pointsettas artfully displayed, intermingled with large train sets, and natural carvings of Omaha's famous and historical buildings. The other...

Lauritzen Gardens is a year-round delight. Feature attractions change every few months, so there is always a good excuse to visit again. The poinsettia display was busy two days after Christmas, but the flow was steady and there was ample parking, despite the crowd.

Our first time ever visit was on a Wednesday afternoon after Christmas. Because of a charitable donor, admission fees were waived and entry was free. Lots of Christmas decorations still in place with lots of lights and trains. Good visit bit kinda tough to take pics because of the crowd but an enjoyable visit just the same.

Went over the Christmas break. While there wasn't much to see outside, the Christmas poinsettia display and the conservatory was plenty enjoyable. Free admission during this time of year. I'll definitely want to come back and explore more of the acreage when it warms up.
