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

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!

Veterans and their family specially grand kids will get a whole new understanding of what the veteran went through and discover a whole new meaning for the Veteran. Highly recommend this for the whole family

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
