The botanical gardens are a treasure to see any season of the year. There always is something blooming. Even in the winter there are beautiful indoor displays. You could spend all day wandering through the various gardens. I have had the privilege of watching the Lauritzen gardens grow and would put it at the top of the list of things... More

We just love it here! Love seeing all the green :) Such a calm and relaxing stroll through the gardens and even indoors! We witness at least one wedding every year we go. Once we witnessed an engagement!!!! That was so exciting!!

We took our grandson to see the lego display, and to see the plants in the arboretum on a cold spring day. We love going to Lauritzen Gardens any time of the year!

Beautiful gardens simply full of tiny nooks and crannies to sit, to sketch or to simply take in the beautiful scenery. As a photographer I love the multitude of options it gives me for poses (but be forewarned, if you're a professional photographer you need to call ahead to schedule a time to come and pay a fee)

Really interesting and relaxing place to visit. Wonderful outside gardens are beautiful in season. The flowers and plans are spectacular and the rose garden is beautiful when in bloom.

Outside gardens were not blooming yet, but the use of historical bits of architecture made the walk outside worthwhile. The greenhouse was a beautiful and unique experience. The Lego art was amazing

I've driven by for years and was pleasantly surprised when we finally did stop in. The gardens are much larger than I expected and although not in full bloom today it was a very nice walk. The Lego exhibits were a fun bonus.

We stopped by as we were arriving in Omaha for a two day stay. Even though too early for beautiful gardens we enjoyed the displays available and the kids enjoyed the Lego designs throughout. Would love to return!

Obviously, this place is at its best when you can wander through the outdoor gardens and look at everything blooming beautifully. But the extensive indoor areas are also fabulous, with some plants you can't see elsewhere in Kansas (I'm almost positive I saw a banana tree...with bananas!) and all of the super cool Lego structures. Normally, the kids would only... More
