Meredith Wilson was from Mason City--and wrote The Music Man. This museum has period storefronts, barber shops, a musical instrument museum, artifacts and interviews about the movie, and a meeting room with "76 trombones" decorating the ceiling. Have an ice cream cone at the old-fashioned treat shop.
The whole place is inexpensive--and I guarantee you'll feel good when it's time to go.
