Very Good Sculptural Tour of Pioneering through the West. The Bronze figures were well done; the multiple blocks of information and sculptures were great.

This is a hidden gem in Omaha. It tells the story of the pioneers with these amazing sculptures. It does not take a lot of time to get around it but it is amazing

Anyone who played the video game Oregon Trail will appreciate this impressive multi-block sculpture group with wagons, horses, oxen and settlers occupying a full block in Omaha. The work actually extends to another park a block away with running bison and birds in flight, the idea of the sculpture being that the settlers came to found Omaha and the wildlife left. It’s an interesting sculpture that both celebrates the march of progress while recognizing the environmental consequences. It’s pleasantly integrated into the urban Omaha environment (one bison is literally embedded in a building corner).

I was driving by when I saw these fabulous works of art! I immediately pulled over, parked and began taking photographs. I could not believe how life-like each sculpture was, from the wagons, to the pioneers, to the bison. Put this on your list. It must be seen in person...Just beautiful work.

A MUST SEE!!! This sculpture set gives you the feel of how Omaha began. Each sculpture shows the character and emotion of the struggle to start in the West.

The statues are built to 125% scale and look extremely realistic. The statues help you imagine what it must have been like for the pioneers. Make sure to follow the buffaloes to see the geese taking flight.

This collection of sculptures extends for a few downtown city blocks, and tells a unique story about how the Omaha region contributed to America’s westward expansion during the mid 19th century. The artwork is just over life-size and the attention to detail is phenomenal. It is well worth an hour or two to experience.

If yu are any kind of a history buff... this living tribute to the pioneers was awesome. I would suggest starting at the Lewis and Clark Center on the river by the BOB Bridge and then meandering over to see these life size replicas of the pioneers in action. If you walk a few blocks, you will see the buffalo and wild birds scattered throughout the city. Truly a unique depiction of what are forefathers endured.
