I have been to thus museum several times and it never seems to get old. It has a lot of sioux city history all in one place. They have some great historical movies and special exhibits to keep it interesting. Its free and time well spent. Cant ask for much more.

This was an excellent museum of the history of Sioux City. I spent over 2 hours going through everything. Don't miss the overview video in the little theater near the entrance.
