12.20.2011 / Wondering what to do with visitors over the holidays? Let us help.

Do you have visitors coming into town for the holidays? Do you need some ideas on where to take them? There is so much going on in Omaha during December that it can be hard to narrow down your list! Here are a few ideas both old favorites and some special events that will only be around during the holidays!

"There is so much going on in Omaha during December that it can be hard to narrow down your list"
  • Dinosaurs:  Dawn of the Ice Age at the Omaha Children’s Museum– If you haven’t been to the Dawn of the Ice Age exhibit at the Omaha Children’s Museum, do it now! The exhibit, which features robotic dinosaurs and Ice Age mammals, ends January 8th!
  • CUT! Costume and the Cinema at the Durham Museum – Award-winning film costumes will be on display at The Durham Museum Dec 3rd through April 29th.  Through 43 period costumes, created by and borrowed from the London costume house of Cosprop Ltd., CUT! Costume and the Cinema takes an in-depth look at the art of making costumes that set the scene and establish authenticity in period films.
  • Holiday Poinsettia Show at Lauritzen Gardens – Think the Gardens are just for spring, summer and fall? Think again! The Holiday Poinsettia Show features over 50000 poinsettia plants and includes a 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree, beautifully decorated holiday trees, antique sleighs and several passenger and freight model trains and runs from November 25th through January 8th.
  • Do you have a Beatles fan in the family? Yesterday and Today is a popular, all-request Beatles Tribute Show that runs at the Omaha Community Playhouse through December 31st!
  • A Christmas Carol is an Omaha tradition – and one that visitors (and longtime residents) will both enjoy!
  • Mannheim Steamroller rolls back into town on December 22nd for a one-night only show.  If you want to see one of America’s favorite Christmas music artists, now is your chance!

If we forgot one of your favorite things to do during the holidays – or if you know of something that your family always requests when they come into town – let us know.  Post a comment on
