The museum is in the process of being moved and renovated. So...here's their solution. Leave all the memorabilia in the old location and keep it closed and locked until the new location is ready. In the meantime, open up the new location and put pictures...More

Thank you for your feedback! We encourage you come back with kids, absolutely! Next summer we should have interactive displays where kids can touch instruments, listen to music and have a more physical experience with the history of Iowa Rock 'n Roll!

This is a small but well-done museum. Its location is right in the heart of Arnold's Park with ample parking nearby. The workers are friendly and helpful yet will let you browse independently if you desire to do so. There many other places to see...More

It is free. Not much to see. It's right next to Arnold's Park, the queen and a small shopping center. There are places to eat or get a drink close by.
