Overview

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.

Just incredible to see literally the evolution of commercial vehicles. It smelled like the old days in there when vehicles were built real.

If you or your kids have ever liked big trucks, this free museum is well worth the visit if you're going along I-80. There are several "only-one-of-these-left-in-the-world" trucks as well. The owners have sunk millions into restoring a very important, but much over looked part...More

I've been several times when traveling back home to Kansas from Iowa. The collection keeps getting bigger. Thanks to the Iowa 80 family for preserving these trucks and displaying them. And admission is Free!

The museum exhibit itself is pristine, organized, well labeled and, frankly, impressive in its collection and restoration of historical trucks, and fuel service items. There's quite an assortment of vehicles in various stages of restoration, and apparently the collection continues to grow. We stopped by,...More
