  • We have been to the trail center several times and love it every time. So much information about pioneers that traveled to the Omaha area.

  • If you are interested in history, these folks have a lot. You certainly don't have to be a Mormon to walk away having learned something valuable. Movies are available, the folks are nice and very informative. There is a nice museum area as well
  • This place was great! I was traveling through on business and saw signs for it and thought I would give it a shot. Everyone was so nice and the tour was very informative. I never knew how much history there was in the area. Wish I had more time to visit the other sites in the area they told me about.
