  • Fantastic museum. I visited here when I was traveling to Council Bluffs on business, and it was an interesting museum. Lots of well done exhibits. Not a very large museum, so only about 1 to 1.5 hours.
  • Love the variety of artifacts! Great displays and information. Wished there were more trains.
