Great place to visit whether you are a visitor or have always lived here. I enjoy learning about the history of Waterloo, Cedar Falls, 5 Sullivan Brothers, and many more attractions

This is an great museum! We went with the assumption it was primarily about the Sullivan Brothers. It is, with much more. There is plenty of information on the Sullivans as would be expected but so much more on veterans and conflicts from the civil war on the current middle east campaigns. If you are a veteran, a veteran's family... More

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.

This museum was not on our list of must sees but we are certainly glad we went to see it. The museum is very well kept and had wonderful exhibits about the Iowans who experienced the wars. You really get a good feel about how those men and women felt about their country and fighting for their freedom. There were... More

I took my son, daughter, and their friends because my son needed to visit a planetarium to fulfill a Boy Scout Astronomy merit badge requirement. It is odd that the planetarium is in the same museum as the Veterans museum. After the planetarium show the kids wanted to explore the museum. We had not planed on it or realized it... More
