  • Talk about inspirational. We spent a couple of hours there recently and had a wonderful experience. Our ancestors were amazing people.
  • Awesome spot to get off the road for a bit and feel the Spirit. Learn a little about what the settlers went through even if you aren't Mormon.
  • I learned about a treaty that allowed Mormons to rest and shelter in place for two years. I had never known there was a treaty in place.
  • The history of the beginnings of this area are captured in this visitors center. It is a delightful experience to go through the center. They also often have wonderful temporary displays . This is a must see location, whether you live in Omaha or are just passing through, stop and capture the excitement and hardship that the pioneers experienced here at Winter Quarters!
  • This was an interesting place to look at. There is a museum with some cool items. There is also a short film to watch. The staff was kind.
