AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The winter of 1846 was a cold and cruel one for thousands of Mormons, who chose this area now in the northern suburbs of Omaha as a place to hunker down in before beginning the long trek west to their new home in Utah. This museum not only bears witness to religious persecution in a country founded on religious freedoms, but also to the challenges faced by all the people who struggled during the expansion of the American frontier. The center is open year-round from 9AM to 9PM and is always free. An annual quilt show in September and the gingerbread-house display in December are always fun times to visit.
