Travel Back To The Early Days Of Trucking By Visiting Iowa’s Very Own Iowa 80 Trucking Museum

You may know that Iowa is home to the world’s largest truck stop, Iowa 80. The complex is so massive that you may not be aware that it also houses a museum! The truck stop itself is an incredible 75 acres (four times larger than the average truck stop) and has parking for 900 semi-trucks. The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum is located in the parking lot and contains dozens of antique trucks, a gift shop, and even a small theater that plays informational videos.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Best of all, admission to the museum is free! Donations are always appreciated, however. There’s a lot to absorb here, and you’ll want to plan to spend at least a few hours checking out exhibits. The museum’s Facebook page has tons of information on their displays, plus their hours of operation.
