A classic.

Iconic landmark at the heart of Iowa City and the beautiful University of Iowa campus. Step into Iowa’s history as you tour the old senate chambers and Supreme Court Courtroom. Make sure to take a moment to appreciate the interior reverse-spiral staircase. Fun for all ages.

Really interesting

Paul Hagerman

From the back steps ,overlooking the lawn you can see a Castle , the University Hospital, in the horizon during beautiful sunsets. Be the change you want to see in the world ;)

Prickles Hoggington

I give it five stars because it is excellent for a free museum. It isn't the type of place you will spend all day exploring. You'll view everything within an hour or two. Still, considering how small it is, the exhibits are excellent and really give you a feel for life back in the 1800's. If you're in the area, you can easily spend an afternoon exploring this and the natural history museum next door.

Philip Huang

Great spot to take visitors. Wish there were more exhibits like this around town to showcase the history of the place!

Great time and learning experience! Wouldnt take young ones there as they tend to lose interest quickly andwill be tempted to touch . The service is nice seeing that there is only a greeter, and walking through the museum is independent.

We loved our visit to the Old Capitol Museum and learned a lot. It's on 3 floors but a perfect size. The staff was friendly and helpful. ● There is no entre-fee, but you can donate at the entance. The recomended amount for adults was $5 but $1 for students. ● On the ground floor was a special photo exhibition

Was disappointing after doing the Capitol tour in Des Moines. It was good to see as it is part of Iowa history but it was not that impressive.
