Enjoyed the Iowa display presented on the main floor. Love a museum to walk through and learn something new!

Comprises three main halls - Mammal Hall, Bird Hall & Iowa Hall. The latter is my favorite: it presents dioramas from Iowa's history (going from the very distant past to recent times). While the Giant Sloth is viewed as the star attraction, I prefer the Dunkleosteus.

I found the Natural history museum very cool and interesting There are always classes in session on the second level, so if you're not in a hurry you can stop and listen in. I will return when I have more time

A great free museum to visit. A self guided tour involves Mammal Hall and a Hall of Birds. An interesting visit for all ages

I have visited this museum several times. Each time I am surprised at the amount of quality exhibits. If you have an extra hour before another event, stop in. Its free and well worth the few steps from the Old Capital.
