    Great place to take you children for a fun-filled, free afternoon. Well kept museum with a lot to see and learn.

    This is one of my favorite things in Iowa City. It is a great place to take children. There is no charge, although a voluntary donation is welcome. The dioramas can be very exciting, even a little scary, for pre-schoolers. I find the exhibits in bird hall to be an excellent way to review many of the birds (including the spring warblers) one is likely to see around Iowa City.
