This is a great small naval museum hidden away on the banks of the Missouri close to Eppley airfield. However, the google open hours are not correct, as I only got to visit by chance as one of the volunteers was unlocking the dirt track barrier as I arrived. The museum is likely to be open on Saturdays in a... More

You really have to look hard to find it, but once you do it is totally worth the effort. My wife served in the Navy for several years and she was in heaven walking on the ship. An actual submarine, torpedoes, helicopters, just to name a few things. It is free to get in and those Navy veterans who work... More

Freedom Park is a small museum located east of downtown Omaha on the way towards the airport. There is no direct access to the park from Abbott Drive. You must turn off into Millers Landing then turn left onto Freedom Park road. The entrance is on the right about 1 mile down the road. At the park are a submarine... More

Go over the overpass and take the second right (if you get to a large sculpture on your right, you missed the turn). Go about 100 yarde and take... More

We had a great visit. The dirt road and poor entrance made it hard to find the place. Try to go early when the day is coolest. It gets hot inside the ship and submarine. The Navy Submarine Veteran gave us the most detailed tour. Park is free. The view from the ship deck looking out to Downtown Omaha is... More

A quirky spot in Omaha. They have a submarine tour and I remember this being a lot of fun as a kid to see...it's been there over 30 years. There used to be some great fish and chips you could buy around the area at a local hole in the wall restaurant. Would like to see this are get built... More

By the Missouri river lies Freedom park featuring an old sub for you to inspect. Great place for a picnic or just to cop a squat.

This place was so hard to find. Road was not easily traveled. Once we did find it it saddened us to see such a great part of history with the grounds and the entry not very inviting. We loved the idea and the museum itself.... They had a ton of pride taken in each display... It would be nice if... More

We never did find this place. A great pity - my husband was looking forward to it. All-in-all, a frustrating day in Omaha - everything we tried was closed or no longer existed.
