We recently visited that. It is located in Camp Dodge (hint - be sure to come in the south entrance. They will also want to see an ID such as a drivers license). It has artifacts and information about all the wars, dating back to when there were forts, and going to the most recent ones. It is not a... 更多
We have lived in this area all our lives and have never been here. Decided to take some out of state friends here today. This place is outstanding. Interesting, well designed displays of Iowa military history from Civil War to present. Also a nice Iowa Highway Patrol display. The Curator asked if any of us had family from Iowa who... 更多
Iowa Gold Star Military Museum is fabulous. Go see it even if you are a local. There are few things to know and consider when visiting this museum. The words Gold Star in the name of the museum has meaning. In 1918, President Woodrow Wilson suggested the mother's of sons killed in combat wear a black band with a gold... 更多
What a great little museum!! I can't believe it has been right under our noses all these years and we just now discovered it! A fantastic little museum at Camp Dodge that honors Iowans that have served in wars. I would allow 1-3 hours depending on how much you want to read. Very interesting! We will definitely go back!!!
Excellent military museum centered around the Iowa National Guard. Great displays from early to modern. Staff is quite knowledgeable and friendly. Defiantly worth the stop and price (Free)
We almost passed on visiting this museum. What a mistake that would have been. The museum is not huge, but the the displays are pristine! I think the best I have ever seen. Clean, well kept, hands on for the kids, and great information. Take time for this one!
Every Iowan should visit this site. The incredible artifacts and information housed here is amazing in scope and displayed to highlight their importance. My only complaint is this gem is NOT advertised at all. With Iowa Public TV located only about a mile away why is there not an hour long program developed to let every Iowan know it even... 更多
Good museum, full of exhibits, some of which you can interact with such as the helicopter you can sit into. Unfortunately as I did not have an American driving licence, I was not able to drive to the museum as its on a live Military base and they have a policy of only letting people with American licences to drive... 更多
