Iowa 80 Trucking Museum. Iowa 80 Trucking Museum

There's a great family tourist destination in eastern Iowa. It's the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum at the Walcott interchange, mile marker 284, along Interstate 80. That's about 10 miles west of Davenport and the Quad-Cities area.

My wife and I took our grandson and granddaughter, and they both loved the display of old trucks. There's a theater with continuous videos about trucking, lots of gas station signs and other trucking memorabilia. I particularly liked the collection of restored antique gas pumps. The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum also has a visitor center with clean rest rooms and a gift shop.

The museum is next to the world's largest truck stop, Iowa 80 Truck Stop.
