These bronze sculptures were wow. They are so detailed - expressions on people faces, horses reaction, barrels on the cart, ropes tied, the cart stuck in mud, etc - its just amazing. Looks so real.. This is a must see place who visits Omaha.

I saw this park when we were searching "things to do" and I can't express how happy I am that we went. These beautiful bronze sculptures were so lifelike. Even the expressions on the faces was amazing. This is a must see.

This beautiful sculpture garden captures the spirit of pioneering America. The bronze sculptures are so beautiful capturing the facial expressions of the travelers and their animals. The detail of the fabrics so real and touchable in bronze is truly worth seeing.
