Each state in America has a unique history and offers a unique contribution to the country as a whole.  If you call Iowa home, or if you'd like to learn more about the state while you're passing the heartland sometime, make a visit to the State Historical Museum of Iowa!

A visit here will be both entertaining and educational as it gives you a broad picture of Iowa's history, from before its inception up to the present! The thoughtfully planned and researched exhibits will give you a peek into how the state was settled, Iowa's role in the Civil War, and even how bicycling became an integral part of Iowa culture, starting back in 1973.  Best of all, the museum offers many special programs and activities, exploring topics like the ice age, World War I, baseball history, and monarch butterflies. Many of these programs are offered during school breaks, and by enrolling your kids, you can trust they're having fun and having a great time!

With spring break coming up, plan a visit here with the family. Each person you bring will find something that interests them.  Have fun!
