What a beautiful place. The poinsettias were the focus now, of course, and on display in multiple colors throughout the spacious greenhouse. The 700 in the Christmas tree were stunning and the model trains and models of Omaha landmarks were complemented by the tall Norfolk...More

These beautiful gardens were not at their peak in late October, but still definitely worth seeing. There are wonderful walking trails, great conservatory, and a lovely gift shop.

We went for the chrysanthemum show & a walk through the conservatory. We also went for a ride on the tram which is always a nice ride. The conservatory is our favorite space at the Gardens. We love all the different palms.

The rose garden should be in full bloom, educational and fun children’s garden, and the miniature train is a must, outside in the summer. The glass arboretum is lovely, especially if it is beastly hot! You can take a tram... More
