#17 of 54 in Things to do in Omaha
Witness glimpses of the great "Mormon Migration" as you walk beside a covered wagon, pull a handcart, climb in the bunks on a steam ship, and imagine a railroad journey. Exhibits also explore the expulsion from Nauvoo, crossing Iowa, and temporary settlements in the Middle Missouri Valley, including Winter Quarters. Located adjacent to the Mormon Pioneer Cemetery dating from 1846 to 1848.

    The visitor center was really well laid out and did a great job of giving a good amount of information about the significance of the area. We spent about an hour and a half there with 3 kids and we were all engaged the whole time.

    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.

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.
