The gardens opened their doors for anyone that wanted to visit during the Holiday break. They pull out all the stops to put together an amazing poinsettia display with working model railroads and botanical garden access. You can't go wrong visiting during this week. We also were able to visit the Trains just South of the Gardens.

Our daughter had always encouraged us to visit Lauritzen Gardens as she and her family have enjoyed their visits there for years. They have three kids ages 5 - 9 and they love the various family oriented displays throughout the year. So on New Years Eve morning another couple and we decided to check out the Poinsettia Show. Turned out... More

We try to visit Lauritzen Gardens at least once per year. The model railroad garden is my son's favorite. Beautiful landscaping, lots of events for every taste and an easy walking trail. The trail can take some effort if you walk the whole thing especially on a hot day. But you can do as much as you like. The new... More

Really glad to see a place like this in Omaha. Nice to walk around and calm your inner peace here. Would be good to have a yearly pass and come here when the stress level is very high. A top place to see while in Omaha.

Although we previously lived in Omaha, we had never visited Lauritzen Gardens ever. While visiting family, we decided to see the Christmas Poinsetta Display on our way to the airport. What a terrific experience. A delightful Holiday atmosphere, with thousands of Pointsettas artfully displayed, intermingled with large train sets, and natural carvings of Omaha's famous and historical buildings. The other...
