  • I have always loved this place. Even though it is not as big as some of the museum complexes I have been to. It is nice to have this gem in central Iowa.
  • Did a historical dinner. Amazing experience. Had a blast. Can't wait to go back!!
  • This is a great family-friendly place to visit. They have some really fun events going on year round for children and adults alike.
  • Such a unique and fun experience for all ages. I love the Flynn Mansion. Staff and volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable. I like to visit every couple of years and am never disappointed.

  • Had great time at the Flynn Mansion dinner. Wonderful staff that made for a great atmosphere and history lesson.
