What is a Historical & Ag Museum?

A place dedicated to connecting the past to the present to imagine the future.

Two Locations

Your visit will not be complete until  you explore both levels at the Main Street location and also the Chestnut Street location. Plan your own tour or come for a special event -- either way you're sure to see something different each trip.


Our Offerings

Dedicated to celebrating the life of pioneer families, rural communities and agriculture.



STANDARD TOUR: $3 per person*
Children ages 4 and under are free.


*Pricing for events, programs and tours scheduled by appointment varies.


Spend a night (or a day) at the museum! Our main street space offers the ideal backdrop and amenities for meetings, conferences, parties, class reunions and so much more. Contact us for details.

The museum is a Designated Partner Site of Silos and Smokestacks National Heritage Area, a federally-designated 37-county region in Northeast Iowa. Heritage Areas are an Affiliate Program of the National Park Service.
