Interesting to tour this old, historic house. Original furniture gives a glimpse into how all the homes used to look around here.

This General's home is worth a 1/2 day trip. It's authentic American history with amazing original artifacts from that period. The docents were outstanding---one of the best I've experienced. Great place to bring kids Grade 5 and up.

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.

This house (and the fantastic tour guide volunteer!) really gives you a sense of how recent Omaha's city-hood was, because it was basically the first thing here and it wasn't so long ago. I loved the music box in the parlor room, and the tour was full of interesting information on the period furnishings.

If you enjoy history and period furnishings, you will enjoy a visit to the General Crook House. Located on the grounds of Fort Omaha just north of downtown, this is a wonderful step back in time to about 1885 or so. The house looks very much like it might have back then. There is always a special exhibit in the... More

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