  • 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.

  • fabulous place to visit especially when there's special performance program. it's owesome :) Don't miss ones. Plus history of the old capital rooms are very well organized.
  • Beautifully restored building, with a whole lot of history to learn. Three floors of artifacts which are gained by a fantastic spiral staircase. We love old places like this, and it's right in the middle of the University of Iowa campus. I would recommend a quick 30-60 minute stop to check it out - parking is plentiful out front.
