This was by far the most amazing garden I have ever been to. Flowers were gorgeous even in September and the miniature trains going to and fro through the flowers and forest in one section was spectacular!! I would love to return to this garden in the spring. My husband's sister and her husband live in Omaha, so they were... More

There is always a pleasant surprise at the gardens. Right now it is the wonderful Lego display. A few weeks ago it was the poinsettias with the model trains running through them. I love taking family and friends to this gem in our city. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars are the employees (really the management)... More

We visited during the Christmas season! So, everything we saw was indoors. The huge poinsettia Christmas tree was beautiful. The model trains winding their way through a recreation of major Omaha landmarks was impressive. Two other areas had all kinds of tropical plants. The lighting along with the water features made for an enjoyable stroll. My wife has taken her... More

This is a very nice place with many gardens to see. The greenhouse is very nice, they have bananas growing in Nebraska. There is also a nice large scale model railroad with models of some of the landmark buildings in Omaha. If you want to see everything bring some bug spray. The mosquitos left me alone in the open areas... More

No matter what time of the year it is, there is lots to see at Lauritzen Gardens. It is ever changing with the seasons! AND, be sure to ask about their evenings of music in the summer. A most relaxing and fun time!

You can walk this place or take like a tram to ride around part of the flowers in the back area. They have a huge indoor area of the flowers and foliage so you can be inside for part of your time and then we went for the ride on the like a tram. They have free days so we... More

The Poinsettia Tree was gorgeous! It was the first time I had ever seen it. My visit was short, but worth the time I was there. I had a partial view of the tree while eating lunch with my friend. Can't beat that!

The Christmas variety of poinsettias are absolutely beautiful and the large tree of poinsettias is worth making a stop during the holiday season. The toy trains hidden between all the beautiful flowers is a sight to see.
