When you think of an Iowa Welcome Center, you don’t think full-scale awesome history museum! You could truly spend hours here. There is a large exhibit on agriculture history, a peddlers wagon (something I had never seen before), a log cabin, schoolhouse and general store…and tons more!
A nice side-walk connects all the outdoor buildings, including the little houses you can see on the right in the picture. This area was like a little play village for the kids. There was a side walk “road” which they could “drive” on.
Next time we will plan a picnic here and bring the kids scooters so they can race around on the little village roads.
