Beautiful gardens await you at Lauritzen Gardens, both indoors and outdoors. Lush and green plants are everywhere in this botanical center. Many gardens varying from rose gardens to Japanese Gardens. Great way to spend your day.

Lauritzen Gardens has alot to see!! One of the best things to do here is to take the train ride around the gardens, and, then on to the Kenefick park (the train display). Very relaxing place and, alot of plants to look at.

If you like walking about outside around beautiful plants, this is a great place to visit. If you live in the area, think of buying a membership. They make changes every year and have different activities during the months.

We love it here and will continue to return. Love the various events too so check their website or Facebook page for special events. Make sure you reserve a tour via tram as soon as you arrive.

What an amazing secret find! Been to Omaha several times and never known about this wonderful garden. Flowers and plants everywhere. Had some really unusual foods made out of sweet corn including peppers with the corn. Would highly recommend this wonderful Hidden Gem.

Great place to take a long walk when everything is blooming. Also has a nice little shop and place to get a salad or cool drink.

I usually come here once a year. I enjoy the flowers and seeing the toy train displays. It's usually busy. There is plenty of parking and it is a beautiful facility. There is plenty places to sit and a small cafe for drinks and sandwiches....More

At least 2 hours and it could easily be more. There's a snack bar where you can get light food.
