Free to Iowa Farm Bureau members. There is so much to see, so allow plenty of time to take it all in. Such a great variety of exhibits, something for everyone. Really enjoyed the interactive sites and looking for people we know.

My husband and I enjoyed visiting the Iowa Hall of Pride and feel everyone in Iowa should visit this. There is so much to be proud of in Iowa because we have so many talented and gifted people.
