Treasure our History!


Heartland Museum was established to tell the story of agriculture in North Central Iowa, to preserve some local collections that might otherwise disappear, and to celebrate small towns that make rural Iowa a treasure.

Grand Reopening Memorial Day Weekend 2015.  Open Saturday, May 23rd, Sunday, May 24th, and Monday,    May 25th from 1:00 to 4:00 PM.
