University of Iowa Museum of Natural History

Founded in 1858 this Museum is located on the University of Iowa campus at Iowa City. The museum is known for its extensive collection of birds, mammals, and Native American artifacts. Important research collections include the Kallam Collection of prehistoric stone tools, the Talbot and Jones Bird Collections, the Frank Russell Collection of Inuit and Native Arctic artifacts, and a large collection from the Philippines from the 1904 World`s Fair. The exhibits are broadly representative of the four major divisions of natural science: anthropology, botany, geology, and zoology. Located in Macbride Hall on the northeast Pentacrest, the museum is open 7 days a week except University and national holidays. The hours are 9:30-4:30 Monday through Saturday and 12:30-4:30 Sundays. There is no admission fee.
