“A must see for everyone!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Some people will sit back and complain that "there is nothing to do here". That really is not the case if one sits back and visits attractions that the city really has to offer. The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum is one of those things that locals and visitors alike should visit. The museum has many great exhibits that allow one experience and appreciate what veterans accross the country have done for us. It is educational for all ages. Upon ariving you get a "dog tag" from a soldier that allows you to scan throughout the museum and you learn from their expeirences.

Would reccomend this museum to anyone making a visit to Waterloo.

“This is an excellent museum for kids and adults.”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

This is a really great museum. Kids can have fun and learn about history. The museum is an interactive museum. You are given a dog tag to use at the differant stations thoughout the musuem. The tag assigns you a soldier and you learn what he experienced during a certain war period. This museum gave you a better understanding about veterans and the hardships they face. I would highly recommend this museum.

“what a treat!”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

we have been to the museum a few times this past year and loved it every time! the detail they put into the veterans display is like no other. we can spend hours there reading and listening to the stories told by the veterans themselves. so much history! we take our out of town visitors to this exhibit and they are so impressed!
