It is a shame that this Castle was not totally preserved. Has been used for other purposes since the 1940s but is still a very nice museum. With the guided tour it takes almost two hours to complete..... more »
I ADORE Joslyn Castle!! We went to the ‘Joslyn Unlocked’ night and had a magical time. Between the incredible cocktail hour to delicious dinner we fell in love every part of the castle. The tour guides were so funny and knew every inch of the historical building. You learn so much about Omaha and all that the Joslyns did for this city. Can’t wait to go back for their next event soon!!!
We went on one of their scheduled tours, Thursday at 2:00. They open the doors 15 minutes before the tour officially starts. No reservations needed. Admission is reasonable. There is plenty of private parking. The tour starts with a short video then your tour guide takes you on the house tour. Our tour guide was really informative, had stories, and was funny. She kept the attention of my 17 and 20 year old sons. I think George and Sarah would be proud of how well the house was being kept. They also have a gift shop with cute souvenirs.
