  • This is a free attraction so I wasn't sure what to expect. Turns out there was a lot of interesting state history and displays with a whole variety of stuffed animals inside.  more »

  • Best staycation activity ever!
  • 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.
  • Nice place to visit. The specimins are well preserved and the setting are nice too.
  • Large array of Natural History!
