Monday-Friday 10am-4pm; Sat-Sun 1pm-4pm; Adults $5($6 holidays); Students $4; 6yrs-12yrs $3.Directions to General Crook House Museum - If you are heading North on highway 75, merge onto North 30th Street. Take a left (or turn West) onto Fort Street, which is the main entrance for MCC. Once on campus, head straight West through campus until you come to a "T" in the road with a stop sign, turn right (or North) - The General Crook House is the 6th house on the left (or West) side of the road. We are the only house with a large American flag hanging on the front porch.

This will not be everyone's cup of tea, but as a bit of different history of a civil war general (and Indian fighter's ) house with period furniture, etc. it's worth an hour. Definitely not for kids!

Great recorded tour, beautiful garden. We arrived with only 40 minutes to see the house and really could have spent more time. Two-for-one coupon was available via Entertainment online; cost very reasonable either way.

Very hard to find but well worth the effort. The house is well furnished and explains everything that was going on at the time of it's construction including the life of General Crook and his relations with the Native Americans of the area.

Nice period home. Audio tour in your own time if desired. Basement display was a bonus as it is currently early Omaha radio/television.

Honestly, we stopped the Crook House because of General Crook, a legendary American cavalry general, who, late in his life, came to honor Native Americans more than most other white Americans did. I liked him and his story, we were on our way home, I...More

Not much there, wouldn't plan a day on it. If you want to go to the zoo, old market and SAC and add it as a 10=-15 minute stop YEA
