  • Great little museum on Clinton's north-end riverfront. We enjoyed visiting The Sawmill in Iowa and right across the river visiting The Windmill in Fulton.  more »

  • Visited the museum with 3 small children (ages 6,4,3). Spent several hours playing in the lumber camp and checking out the exhibits. Interesting and informative, well worth a visit.  more »

  • Great place to learn about the saw milling days in Lyons / Clinton day. Every one should stop and check it out. You won't be disappointed.
  • Great and educative venue if you're interested in the history of Clinton's economic uprise - and downfall. And an excellent example what happens if economic interests disregard sustainability: Once the forests in the midwest were depleted, the sawmills had to close, thousands of people were laid off, and the money just moved on to the next ventures.
  • My kids always enjoy going to the Sawmill. It is such an interesting place to visit and take guests to. I have yet to catch a live demonstration here, but that isn't for a lack of them.
  • Hands on and very informative.
