The State Historical Museum is an exciting adventure: its exhibits tell the stories of Iowa’s growth and development through the exhibition of a rich collection of historic artifacts and documents. Central to the history of Iowa are its people. The State Historical Museum celebrates Iowans, their ambitions, accomplishments, disappointments and their contributions – often unrecognized and unrecorded- creating a state-wide ethos that Iowans come to share.
Admission is free. Museum also contains museum shop and Cafe Baratta’s.
