  • So fun to see all of the displays. There is no way a person could go through this museum in less than 3 hours. There is so much to see that you'll miss it if you don't go through it slowly and often!  more »

  • Great place! Free of charge too! (Except for paying the meter outside to park) There was a wonderful, short (15 minute or so) theatre showing of the history of Sioux City. To watch this you just had to request they play it at the front desk. The theatre entrance was right near the front desk. The museum is quite large with tons of neat stuff. Our personal favorite was the kids fossil dig area and connected to that room - a room full of beautiful rocks and gems, fossils and even meteorites. There was even more that that though - tons of Sioux City historical items and also things from around the country. We were there for over an hour and didn't get to look at everything. The kids really enjoyed it and there's also a gift shop.
  • I'm really glad that Sioux City has something this nice to offer to the public. They change their exhibits quite often so just because you went once doesn't mean you never need to go back again. If you wait 1 to 3 months you will see they really bring some unique fun exhibits to this museum location. Such as years ago they had a great Jackson Pollack painting and popular themes for kids quite often as well. Check it out, you will enjoy the day. Fun restaurants downtown to go afterwards too.
  • We went to the museum for a special workshop for younger kids and it was great. The kids loved doing all the projects and visiting the museum as well. They loved the log cabin. A great place to bring kids to learn and explore.
  • This place captures so much of my memories of Sioux City. I took my fiance there and every exhibit innitiated another story. I imagine that many Siouxlanders feel that same nostalgia touring the museum, and many others get a sence of the city's rich history.
  • A wonderful place with so much to see and learn I highly recommended this place!
