This will not be everyone's cup of tea, but as a bit of different history of a civil war general (and Indian fighter's ) house with period furniture, etc. it's worth an hour. Definitely not for kids!

Great recorded tour, beautiful garden. We arrived with only 40 minutes to see the house and really could have spent more time. Two-for-one coupon was available via Entertainment online; cost very reasonable either way.

Very hard to find but well worth the effort. The house is well furnished and explains everything that was going on at the time of it's construction including the life of General Crook and his relations with the Native Americans of the area.

This house (and the fantastic tour guide volunteer!) really gives you a sense of how recent Omaha's city-hood was, because it was basically the first thing here and it wasn't so long ago. I loved the music box in the parlor room, and the tour was full of interesting information on the period furnishings.

If you enjoy history and period furnishings, you will enjoy a visit to the General Crook House. Located on the grounds of Fort Omaha just north of downtown, this is a wonderful step back in time to about 1885 or so. The house looks very much like it might have back then. There is always a special exhibit in the... More

Nice period home. Audio tour in your own time if desired. Basement display was a bonus as it is currently early Omaha radio/television.

The Douglas County Historical Society has preserved the post quarters of General Crook to its pioneer period circa 1880s. The volunteers gladly take you throughout the home and high light the antiques and photographs on display. Temporary exhibits are downstairs. The beautiful gardens outside are worth visiting during the spring and summer. And the Historical Society hosts special events including... More

Honestly, we stopped the Crook House because of General Crook, a legendary American cavalry general, who, late in his life, came to honor Native Americans more than most other white Americans did. I liked him and his story, we were on our way home, I found a brochure in a motel rack--so we stopped. The place was waaaaaay beyond my... More

Not much there, wouldn't plan a day on it. If you want to go to the zoo, old market and SAC and add it as a 10=-15 minute stop YEA
