The site is very clean, a smooth operation: you are greeted by a Mormon missionary who escorts you around the museum. The visit begins with a 15-minue video about the Mormons and their historic trek across Nebraska in 1846-7. The missionary did ask us whether...More

If you love old cemeteries, this is a treasure. There are original grave markers from pioneers, and also a beautiful memorial to all the pioneers who died while living at Winter Quaters. A beautiful and peaceful place.

This cometary is a MUST SEE when visiting Omaha. Make sure you take time too tour the visitor center across the street. Tours are conducted by very knowledgable young adults. That can easily answer all your questions.

If your family immigrated across the US during pioneer days this is an interesting place to visit due to its sculpture and setting. While commemorates the Mormon migration, it's just as relevant if you're not a LDS member. The nearby Mormon Trails Museum tells their...More
