Iron Lung display.

Medical Museum

Medical museum inside a hospital. I used nearby parking ramp. Under 30 minutes is free, over that is only 60 cents an hour. Enter through main hospital doors, walk to the back to elevator F, then go to floor 8. The museum is in two separate rooms.

Open since 1989. Highlights include an iron lung, a World War II first aid kit, and a 1930s examination chair seen in the film, "Field of Dreams," which is its own attraction in Iowa.
