 Below are the top five attractions in Omaha. Except for number five, the results are according to Trip Advisor results.

#5 The Creighton University or The Old Market?

The Creighton University is Trip Advisor's number five Omaha attraction, and students of the university and their families often comment on the beauty of St. John's Cathedral. Perhaps the Old Market should be tied with the Creighton University for #5. A historic section of downtown Omaha, the Old Market, offers cobbled streets, preserved buildings, good restaurants, coffee shops, and interesting street performances. Both are lovely places to go for a stroll and to enjoy the scenery and free entertainment.

#4 Film Streams

A nonprofit organization, Film Streams strives to achieve cultural enhancement of the Omaha-Council Bluffs area by presenting and discussing films as art. Located in downtown Omaha, Film Streams offers four programs: First Run Films, Repertory Selections, Arts in Education, and Community Development.

The Omaha Performing Arts building, located in central Omaha, offers a variety of exciting, world class theatre, opera, and concert shows. From comfy, out fashioned seating, visitors watch truly spectacular and affordable live shows.

#2 The Durham Museum

Many displays, lovingly restored trains, and great shows keep visitors coming back year after year.
