The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Vets museum has very thoughtful and well-planned exhibits, including an opportunity to listen to interesting oral testimonies. Well worth the visit.

Enjoyed this museum with my dad and son. Father was a Vietnam vet so there was a section dedicated to that conflict/war. Many learning stations and clean.

During spring break this year many local attractions offered admission for one dollar a person. Entertainment was enhanced with crafts & other outside organizations. Our grandchildren loved the afternoon we spent visiting this museum. Local history was interesting as was general information.

The war displays are new and interesting. The interactive features show well enough. The local angle is great. I need to go back again and dig deeper into the war displays.

I work at a museum, so I am picky about other museums. I thought this museum is very well done. I love the interactive they offer, and I think my fiancee and I had more fun then his teenagers! The staff at the desk was very friendly and nice to talk with. I would definitely go back again!

I visited with my family and dad. Every war with it's history is covered. I thought the most fascinating part was the video tapes of actual veterans from each war. It makes you feel like you are there with them. Very educational
