There was no tour the day we were there so we simply walked around the grounds. The castle is well-maintained on the outside and looks to be the centerpiece of this historic district. Makes for a beautiful photograph.

This is an incredible masterpiece. The way the owner came about the building materials and design was amazing. A must see if you like show case homes.

MUST tour the castle when it is decorated for Christmas with a differently decorated tree in each room. Beautifully maintained and the tour guide had a wealth of information to share. A castle in Omaha is a must see on your bucket list.

This is a beautiful historical site, though the limited tours are a little disappointing. We plan on trying to visit again when we can actually go inside.

It is fun to take a tour here or go to an event. However, if you arrive when the building is closed, you can tour the grounds and gardens. Even in winter there is a story to tell here.
