Iowa gold star museum is the place to be if you have keen interest in military weapons, artefacts and other collectibles. From the static display of military equipment, the aircrafts placed outside, to the exhibits placed inside, the collection is extensive and pretty impressive. It’s a free place to walk through and get to learn more about the contributions that are made by the Iowa soldiers through time. The displays are interactive and there’s even a periscope placed in the submarine area through which you can observe the base.
Iowa Gold Star Museum Reviews & Ratings
The Iowa Gold Star Museum is a true gem! Top Notch exhibits and an amazing array of weaponry and artifacts. Our guide, Bob Gates was personable, knowledge and patient. Our group enjoyed his commentary. I would definitely recommend putting this museum on your central Iowa bucket list! Thank you for a unique experience🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Other than the maze of driving through the base to get there, the museum was great! It's a free place to walk through and enjoy learning about contributions from Iowa soldiers through time. There are many real vehicles to see such as helicopters, a plane, and vehicles. There is also a periscope in the submarine area that can see out into the base. It was fun.
I enjoyed this museum a lot. Fair warning navigation might be a little difficult as Google doesn't have good map of camp dodge, and I am not sure it should given its on a national guard base. Also its on a national guard base, so be prepared for that. Having said all that its a great place to learn about Military History.
Free free, kids had fun climbing on the tanks, an all the interaction play things... Great to spend a couple of hours on a cold day. An if it's nice out side. Fun there to
Absolutely chock full of amazing artifacts (especially guns and tanks!) Incredibly nice staff. Wonderful place!
