It's interesting, but it's not only a drive, but the place isn't everything it could be given how well-funded it is. The latest exhibit is more to-do than what can actually be done.
It seems like the city had some extra space and someone got the idea to put a museum in it. I'd go to the Autry or, even better, the tar pits if you've got the time.
They don't have a lot of coin tables and the ones they do have aren't really worth playing on. There's some action in the back that everyone knows about, it's 6.50 an hour per person.
THe customer service is great and the prices well within reason. A lot of folks start the night here, or end the night, so there's a lot of good cheer in the place.
It's an enormous facility and music-filled environment. There's plenty to do outside of bowling, but of course that's the main attraction. Don't go on league night.
The town itself has a colorful past that might be best if learned from the local storytellers and the people on the street. The place is tomb of pictures from floods.
It's a small place that documents the agricultural influence and the river's hand to play in the building of the city. It's educational without being fun.
The musuem is underfunded and a little ridiculous because of that. Some great artists have come out of Iowa and this museum does little to reflect that.
Everything is current from the screens to the seats and there's great parking. There's a lot to see nearby and places to walk before and after the show. Including the riverboats next door.
It's an owner operator business with a lot of though given to the products being displayed. For example, the movies are displayed by the director rather than title.
