If you're like me, you likely drove by this midtown Omaha landmark many times and asked, "I wonder what goes on in that castle-looking place?" before you finally stopped in to check. Well, it's a castle...in midtown Omaha. Tours are offered regularly, and the tour...More

We walmed west on California St. to find a historic home area full of small mansions that lead to the casrle. once at the castle, it was closed, but the garden gates were open to exore the surroundings. Lush landscaping is just lovely.

I lived in Omaha for three years before I ever visited the Joslyn Castle. I think partly that is because I never knew the legacy and influence of the Joslyn's in Omaha. The Castle does a great job of telling that story. It's convenient to...More

Our tour guide Sherri was very sweet and extremely informative.The castle is stunning inside. Definitely worth $8 to $10 per person. Each room features a different type of hand carved wood.. I would advice any artist or architect to visit here for inspiration

There was a private activity going on when we visited the castle, so we didn't tour the inside. Took lots of pictures of the outside, the grounds and the structures on the property are simple spectacular. A beautiful piece of architecture.

Staff was really friendly and knowledgeable. Always enjoy when they share personal stories about family/history of the building. Tour allows you to see the majority of the castle

The grounds are lush and the house is beautifully grand. Built in 1903 by the wealthiest couple in Nebraska at that time. The Joslyns were lovers of art and culture, and it shows in this grand home. Every room is built and embellished with a...More

Very beautiful house. We visited in the winter so we the grounds didn't have much to see. Would have liked it better if there was a self guided tour but the tour guides were all very nice.
