  • The museum and gift shop was lovely, and the lady working it was very genuine and kind. Unfortunately the cathedral had a wake happening when I visited so I didn’t go past the first set of pews.  more »
  • Wow! Visiting St. Cecilia’s Cathedral was one of the best parts of our four days in Omaha! The Spanish Renaissance Revival architecture of this cathedral is quiet amazing as it sits high on a hill in....  more »
  • It is a beautiful cathedral, stunning Classic European Cathedral architecture and just as stunning on the inside. I enjoy going there to take photos in the winter, spring and fall. For those who appreciate Cathedral Architecture and for those of the Catholic and Episcopal faith and any Christians who appreciate such stunning architectural treasures it's a Must See and truly a treasure for those of us here in Omaha.
  • There is a great deal of detail in the outside and inside of this building. The carving, masonry and hand painting work are all masterful in quality. The many stained glass windows are almost ethereal in their beauty. We went here for the annual flower show and enjoyed both the mainstay design of the building and the artistry of the flower arrangements depicting different cultures across the globe. I would recommend a visit to the area just to see this stunning example of Omaha's Architectural History!
