When looking for something to break up a trip from eastern to central Iowa, I came across info about this museum. We decided to stop, and what a treat! It's connected with the Grout Museum (local history), but we didn't have time to visit that part. With two hours, we just didn't have time! The exhibits in the Veterans Museum are really well done, with tons of hands-on things that our kids loved. And there was plenty for adults to absorb as well. It covers Civil War to current conflicts, and includes artifacts as well as interviews with veterans and so much more. I would highly recommend this museum, especially for Iowans interested in the state's military history.
