Established in 1932, the Grout Museum District is widely acknowledged as one of the cornerstones of culture in Northeast Iowa. The District consists of the Grout Museum of History & Science, Bluedorn Science Imaginarium, Snowden House, Rensselaer Russell House Museum and Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum. Opened in November 2008, the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum honors the service and sacrifice of all Iowa veterans from the Civil War to present. Step into their stories through traditional exhibits, interactive activities and an electronic Wall of Honor.


The Iowa Veterans Museum has a number of permanent exhibits that visitors can explore.


The museum’s interactive Dog Tag Stations provide insight into the lives of soldiers and citizens. In each combat period, a station will “read” your dog tag, which is given to you at admission. The station will tell you about that dog tags assigned persona, and how that individual may have experienced events during that period of time.


The Voices of Veterans theaters provide museum visitors detailed accounts of experiences by Iowans. The theaters in the lower level areas feature historical reproductions

about the activities of specific units: the 21st Iowa Volunteer Infantry, the 51st Iowa Regiment and the 168th Iowa Regiment, part of the Rainbow Division. The productions have been drawn from letters, diaries and historical accounts. The upper level theaters feature the voices of actual veterans through video interviews, which capture the emotion and pride they experienced.
