The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum was a dream of Iowa 80 Truckstop founder Bill Moon. His love for trucks and the trucking industry laid the foundation for this museum. Over 60 vintage trucks are on display, as well as antique signs and gas pumps. The museum also features the REO Theatre where visitors can enjoy watching films about trucks and trucking.

If you enjoy big trucks and history, this is the perfect place to go. The selection was great. My only complaint was not having enough time to stay longer.

This place is a must see! Close to the highway and right across from the Iowa 80 truck stop. Free admission (donation only) is just one if the perks. The entire museum is about 10x larger than what it looks like from the outside. Wonderful pit stop on your road trip whether with the kids or flying solo. Highly recommend!
