  • This is one of the finest examples of palatial homes in Omaha, well restored after being resurrected form office duty by the school system  more »
  • We were not able to go in, since that is only for special events. Outside grounds are nice and I heard they do a play series in the summer. Place is rich in history.  more »
  • Okay, so Omaha has never had actual Royals living here, as far as I know, but we do offer some impressive homes. Joslyn Castle is well worth a visit. It is in good shape for its limited resources -- m...  more »

  • There's not much to do here if you don't go on the tour. Tours are the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm only. Tickets are $10 a person, which is a bit pricey but you get to walk around the entire house and the money goes towards preserving the property and such. The tour is really neat and you get a lot of information about the Joslyn's and how the house was built. I would definitely recommend coming to see the house all decorated for Christmas because it is absolutely beautiful the way they have it decorated. It's a neat property and interesting to learn more about the local history.
  • A most while visiting Omaha. Unfortunately it was closed when we went but the place it's beautiful and you can still walk around and take great pictures.
  • The castle would have been a great experience however when our tour started after the video they have you watch it was a rushed event. Our group was larger and when the tour guide was ready to go to the next room after talking we couldnt even enjoy the pictures or anything else to see in each room. She got snippy saying come on everyone we are done in that room. We couldnt take pictures because of her saying we dont have alot of time before she needed to do the next tour. We left before she was done with the final room on the second floor because she wasnt even going to take us to the third floor for the full tour. If your going to do tours you should be able to let everyone enjoy the experience and not rush the people who paid through so you can get onto the next group. Very disappointing! We left due to paying to see the castle but werent really able to see the castle.
  • We took a tour, and the ladies giving the tour were so nice and knowledgeable. They were wonderful with the younger kids we brought.
  • Beautiful place. One of the best spots in Omaha NE. We were not able to tour the place, I believe you have to call ahead, but the surrounding area was nice. I would encourage everyone to visit during the fall time and to call ahead.
