Freedom Park is only open Most Saturdays from 10 AM to 3 PM. To get to Freedom Park, turn right onto Abbott Drive from the ball park (going towards the airport). Go over the overpass and take the second right (if you get to a large sculpture on your right, you missed the turn). Go about 100 yarde and take... More

We had a great visit. The dirt road and poor entrance made it hard to find the place. Try to go early when the day is coolest. It gets hot inside the ship and submarine. The Navy Submarine Veteran gave us the most detailed tour. Park is free. The view from the ship deck looking out to Downtown Omaha is... More

A quirky spot in Omaha. They have a submarine tour and I remember this being a lot of fun as a kid to see...it's been there over 30 years. There used to be some great fish and chips you could buy around the area at a local hole in the wall restaurant. Would like to see this are get built... More

By the Missouri river lies Freedom park featuring an old sub for you to inspect. Great place for a picnic or just to cop a squat.

This place was so hard to find. Road was not easily traveled. Once we did find it it saddened us to see such a great part of history with the grounds and the entry not very inviting. We loved the idea and the museum itself.... They had a ton of pride taken in each display... It would be nice if... More

We never did find this place. A great pity - my husband was looking forward to it. All-in-all, a frustrating day in Omaha - everything we tried was closed or no longer existed.

I really wanted to get there, but the access road as shown on all the maps we had is impassible. That is Freedom Park road. The only sign for Freedom Park was inside the Miller Landing River City and there is where nothing starts. We tried others, but none could get us past the prisons and such. I hope someone... More

The park is closed but while restoration the workers are allowing people to enter the park while they're there we had a good time they were nice enough to let us aboard the ship and give us a tour but all in allwe had a wonderful time and it if we come back this way will go again

I live in Papillion and didn't realize this museum even existed. After reading a few reviews and finding out what happened, I checkout their website and saw they just lifted the mast! Here's a copy of their post: Freedom Park (Omaha, Nebraska) added 2 new photos. Yesterday at 6:14am · A major milestone has been reached at the park; The... More
