The grant Wood section is one of a kind. For a local attraction it is high quality. Good to introduce children to art prior to a major place in Chicago

Smaller museum centered around native son, Grant Wood. More of an emphasis on his earlier works, but has several of my favorites, his undulating Iowa landscapes! Located in the old public library.

Fairly small museum but nice collections. Building has been expanded from an original library, portions of which have been preserved, including a reading room which is a nice touch. There are however, some under-utilized spaces.

Nice variety for a small city museum. There is even an Art-o-Mat on site! The gift shop had wonderful local craft pieces from art to pottery to glassware. A definite stop if you're looking for something to do.

Great Museum for the Cedar Valley area. Wife and I went on a Sunday afternoon. Just enough other people there to make you comfortable but not enough to crowd you. We had plenty of time to browse, relax and enjoy ourselves. Great way to spend...More
