Adult Group Visits
The State Historical Museum of Iowa allows you the freedom of a self-guided visit with your group. The museum is wheelchair accessible and a limited number of wheelchairs are available for use during your visit.
Museum Group Visit
All visit requests will be fulfilled on a first come, first served basis. Visits are not considered booked until you receive a confirmation email from a museum team member. Also, the State Historical Museum of Iowa is unable to guarantee the first date and time request will be available for visiting groups. If the date and time of the requested visit are already booked, a museum team member will contact you via email to work toward finding a different available date and time.
