  • This is a beautifully restored mansion. The furnishings are authentic. Each room is a feast for the eyes. It is on the grounds of a Fort no longer in use. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • Interesting small historic venue. Great staff. Low entry fee, I think $5. Elevator to second floor and basement.
  • Interesting enough. All self-led tours. Half of the audio guides didn't work, so we had one person in our group listen and repeat everything she heard out loud.
  • This place is a big part of my memories about My childhood neighborhood
  • It may be a small museum, but you should stop by and hear the history of our town. Every year there is a different exhibit, on top of the interesting regular displays. Ask about the wallpaper!
  • Anyone who is interested in Omaha history will find the General Crook House and all of Fort Omaha fascinating. There is an excellent garden at the House, and it is great to walk through and look at the exhibits. Highly recommended.

Where to stay in Omaha

Not surprisingly for a city of its size, Omaha has a diverse range of accommodation options to suit a variety of tastes and budgets. A hotel close to downtown is usually more expensive, but enables guests to experience the best of Omaha's nightlife, shopping, and dining on foot. An apartment rental in one of the city's vibrant residential neighborhoods might be a good choice if you are planning a longer stay in the city. You'll find national chain hotels and motels in many of Omaha's suburbs.
