  • Beautiful. Small. Free. Varied. Quiet. Friendly. Impressive building, not really big. Architecture 👍🏻. Art nice, some of it very good. Not a lot. The expo on hunting & fishing is quite traditional. The modern and American-Indian art is really good and interesting. As is the sculpture garden. The place was extremely quiet, Sunday noon. Nice. Friendly staff. No access fee. European art not available. Bit of a downer.
  • Free! This place is free. They have a few incredible pieces and some of the friendliest docents I've ever witnessed. We went on Easter and had the place virtually to ourselves which made for a very magical day. It's also not so enormous that you're overwhelmed and can't take it all in. We made it through most everything in a couple hours and left content. Can't wait to go again when the European wing opens again (May 20).
  • Very nice museum. 2 Monet's. Beautiful courtyard fountain. Great Sunday afternoon experience.
  • Really nice place. It's free so that is a big plus for me. Fun for all the family even little kids. They have a space design for them
  • Half of the museum was closed for renovations which left very little to see. This would have been OK considering the free admission had some of the staff not been so rude to us. My elderly mother who cannot see very well leaned in to look at a painting in better detail (nowhere close to touching it) when when a young woman working there rudely yelled at her to back away from the paining and to stay three feet away. She then proceeded to follow us around for the rest of our time there as if we weren't to be trusted to be left alone. Won't be back here.

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.
