An unexpected gem. This is a must-see if you're traveling in the Cedar Valley or especially if you're a local. Excellent displays about the history of various wars our country has gone through with a unique emphasis on how they affected Iowans. Very educational and informative. Awesome and humble reminders about the sacrifices people were willing to make and not just the soldiers but those who were left behind at home also contributed greatly. This museum turned out to be bigger and better than I would've imagined and in some ways can rival that of what you would see in a big city. As with most museums you can go at your own pace and make it quick. But if you're interested in more details even a moderate pace could allow you to spend a few hours here.
The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum has been collecting oral histories from Iowa veterans since 2003. Currently the museum has over 1500 interviews from 70 Iowa counties.
