“An outstanding tribute to our veterans!”

Ranked #3 of 20 things to do in Waterloo

We are local to the area and always talked about visiting, but until the break over Christmas, we had never gone. Don't wait any longer!!!! It is so wonderful. Every war is represented in a very interesting and educational way. The dog tags that you are issued, help to make it more of a personal experience. There was a very good movie presentation that reminded me of all the stories my Dad, a WWII vet, had told me. The recreations of things from each war, are very realistic. I especially loved the helicopter from the Vietnam War. The windshield is covered in bird droppings from when it was transported to the museum. They were going to clean it, but the Vietnam vets said that it was the way they remember the windshields!!! So the droppings stayed.

The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum is well organized to demonstrate the history of the area's economic development, and representation in the Civil War, WWII, and recent conflicts. I attended my ships (USS The Sullivans) reunion in the musuem, and the food and entertainment was excellent.

I'm from Waterloo, but never went to this museum. When I decided to go I took my teenage niece, best friend and her younger son. Everyone liked the displays. They do a good job of making the events come to life. We had fun taking funny pictures in respectful way. We also found out that my husband's great grandfather's picture is in the museum!
