Owned and operated by the Linn County Historical Society, the Carl and Mary Koehler History Center's permanent gallery include information and displays on archaeology, Native Americans, farming, the train station, immigration, local industries and people who have had an impact on the history of Linn County.
This place was very interesting and it gave our family insight on what life was like for the early settlers of our city. The displays were interactive and appropriate for all ages. Everyone from Iowa should visit this place.
This is a little known gem in Cedar Rapids, and is definitely worth visiting if you are interested in history. I would say it is appropriate for grade school children and older.
Currently, there is a 1960s exhibit that has a lot of interesting artifacts, stories and pictures of the era. There was even a traveling exhibit from the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame at the museum when I visited, with some great photos of the Beatles and other 60s bands.
I also highly recommend taking the cemetery tour this Fall, and the Downtown Architecture Tours that the museum's historian conducts.
We were visiting from Philadelphia and my son and I went to the History Center and had a great time. They have interactive exibits that show you what Cedar Rapids was like 100 years ago. We both had fun and learned lots of things about Cedar Rapids. I would think this would be a great place for Scouts and School groups to go to.
