After climbing the long staircase you get up close and personal with the trains. Its amazing to see how big they are and to learn their history. The view is also very nice because you can see the Missouri River and into Iowa.

This is worthwhile. It should not take more than an hour. The train locomotives are HUGE once you are next to them. Plus you can read interesting stuff about Omaha’s railroad history.

It is a hike up a long staircase from the parking lot in front of Lauritzen Gardens. The trains are very cool if you are into trains - and great for kids. The view, facing toward the river, is outstanding.

Two of the biggest engines ever built, in one spot, it doesn't get better than this. Park in the Lauitzen gardens, stroll up the fairly steep level walkway, or up the steep flight of stairs. The walk up the hill is fabulous. Spend an hour...More

Awesome view and 2 HUGE trains for the person who loves railroad history. You park in the arboretum lot and walk up the steps but the views are amazing.

Visited with my 5 YO grandson who is crazy about trains. We were disappointed because we thought we could go inside the trains but could not. You can only walk around the outside so there's not much to see

Good to get up close with these two giant locomotives and informative panels made the walk to them interesting. Worth doing if you like trains
