Brunnier is Iowa's only accredited museum emphasizing a decorative arts collection. Permanent collection consists of ceramics, glass, dolls, ivory, jade and enameled metals. Rotating exhibits and performing arts center. Went here with a school field trip, so glad that I did.

A very nice collection of differing works, not something one expects to find in a building geared to trade shows and conventions.

If you're at ISU in or around the Scheman building, it's worth to go through this museum. It's worth it especially if you're interested in old carved glass vessels and other.
