Bud C. was our tour guide. He loved to tell about the many displays. There was something for everyone! Everything from Boyd's bears to renovated store fronts to tractors! Clean, organized, informative! Stop there. Took us 3 hours, but could have spent more time there!

Very helpful and knowledgeable (volunteer) staff who obviously enjoy their jobs. The library inside the museum held many fascinating old books, periodicals, land and tax records, etc. The tractors and buggies were fun to see.

This museum seemed to have something of interest for everyone. Easily walked through with benches for resting for older folks if necessary. Great array of history in there. I recommend it if visiting Clarion, IA.

We took our 3 grandsons to this museum. With a tribute to the history of rural Iowa, this is a must see. The volunteers were able to answer questions, and helped make it interesting for kids. Amazing gem in a small town!

After a Google search informed us that the Big Bud tractor was located at this museum, we made an appointment (as we visited before the museum was open for the season), and stopped in. Staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgable, our tour was entertaining and...More

I grew up in this town. All the things they have in the Heartland Museum are awesome works by the farmers in the area. They continue to show how farming has changed over the years.

The Big Bud tractor is at this museum now and is quite a site to see, not to mention about 100 other restored antique tractors!

This block-long museum, fully staffed by volunteers, has under its roof - an extensive hat collection; tractor & farm equipment one-of-a-kind finds; an international teddy bear museum; more than 6,000 farm toy collection; and a walk down the streets of old.
