Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum ($1 entry will also get you into the Grout Museum of History and Science)
Iowa veterans have a million stories to tell – tales of heroism, adventure, and sadly, of trauma and death. For 150 years, Iowa’s men and women have stepped forward to take an oath to preserve the union, safeguard democracy, and defend against terrorism in times of war and peace. The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum honors all Iowans who served the nation from the Civil War to the present. The collection, preservation, and interpretation of their stories and artifacts are the core mission of the museum.
