I presume this is a bigger deal if you are Catholic. Even if you are not, there is much to see and enjoy here. The architecture, the windows, the old pipe organ. It's all very enjoyable.

We attended Sunday mass at 9:30 am. This church is worth coming early to walk around and look at the beautiful architecture. The parishioners are welcoming.

This Cathedral should not be missed. The building is lovely and has a cultural center which houses the cathedral museum. There is the extensive art collection

This is the 2nd time we've taken advantage of this FREE event in Omaha. This year's theme was surrounding the 150 years of Nebraska. The displays were beautiful - each one individually created around it's point of interest. You could smell the flowers as you entered the cathedral. They have live musical performances, so you can sit and listen to... More

Flowers on display from various florists. Some very large. About an hour wait once you get in the door, but music and singing keeps you entertained as you admire the beautiful church. Show is the last weekend in January.

This is a beautiful church and it is a very prayerful place to visit and pray. The beautiful statues around the church have been very well kept up. The organ at the back of the church is very good and the sound is great.

St. Cecilia's Cathedral is one of the oldest cathedrals in Omaha, if not the oldest. Beautiful interior built in the Spanish style.
