Permanent Exhibits

The Old Capitol Museum features permanent exhibits which are free and open to the public during museum hours. Permanent exhibits include restored historic rooms such as the House Chamber, the Treasurer's Office, the State Library, and the Senate Chamber. These spaces have been restored to look as they did in the 1840s when the building served as the Capitol of Iowa or as they did in the 1920s when the office served as the UI's central administratice building.
