  • Unfortunately it was closed due to recent protests. The area is pretty and walkable. There is a small natural history museum next door that is open, small but interesting.  more »
  • This is a beautiful old building. We walked over to look at it. It has been vandalized during the recent protests. There is also some construction going on. It’s still a cool building.  more »
  • Iconic landmark at the heart of Iowa City and the beautiful University of Iowa campus. Step into Iowa’s history as you tour the old senate chambers and Supreme Court Courtroom. Make sure to take a moment to appreciate the interior reverse-spiral staircase. Fun for all ages.
  • Really good place to study. Gorgeous interior and friendly and helpful staff. Many of the high class campus socials tend to be hosted here as well.
