I think the highlight of the historical museum is the wooly mammoth skeleton that is in the main lobby. For as big as the museum is there isn't too much to look at; however the displays that are up are very nicely put together. There's a few permanent sections about prehistoric Iowa, pioneer life, and coal mining. When we were there the museum also had displays about RAGBRAI, the civil war, and preserving the artifacts in the museum. I was here with my husband and brother and we spent a couple of hours wandering around. Admission is free and its a good spot to spend a cold afternoon.
