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.

I enjoy looking at antique trucks. Having been raised on a farm and hearing tales about Studebaker trucks, etc. It was good to see these beautifully restored trucks in person.

I heard a lot about this place, but never had a chance to come and see it. The whole trucking history is here, especially my favorite cabovers. I would like to have one of them, even one from the museum. The best cabover I have ever seen in such a good condition (Henry R. Good Kenworth).

Coming from a NC National Guard unit and anticipating a new career after military retirement, I'm sure this is just one of the wonders to look forward to.

I thought the overall visit was great. It was my first time going there, to the Iowa 80 truck stop and I will go back if I get the chance. The museum was an excellent experience. If you like old trucks it's a must to visit.

Myself and my two youngest children came to visit and had a great time. The kids loved the movie and looking at the trucks, and enjoyed the toys in the gift shop.

We are so glad that you and your children had a nice visit. We hope you enjoyed the recently restored Coca-Cola delivery truck in the lobby. Our team not only restored the truck itself, but also built, painted and stamped (with a vintage stamper) all of the crates for the bottles. It was quite the labor of love. We hope... More

I have been stopping at this "Truck Stop" since it was first built, and it has become a "Must Stop" for every trip across I-80. The museum is small, but nice to see, and the rest of the store is huge, with everything you could want in a travel stop. Everyone from big-riggers to casual travelers will find something to...
