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.

Great selection of makes and vintages, especial older trucks. Museum is clean and well lit, decent temperature despite it being extremely cold out. Being a member of the Antique Truck Historical Society, I can recommend a visit to anyone interested in Truck History!

Our founder, Bill Moon, just could not bear the thought of these old trucks going to the crusher. He saved well over a hundred trucks and some trailers too. So many rare nameplates and one of a kind trucks he was able to spare. We...More

Great trucks on display in the museum. We enjoyed reading the signs in front of the trucks. Truck stop is a great place to tour as well. Great assortment of merchandise for truck and more trucks on display instead there as well.

2nd time there. Always something new to look at. We came along ways in trucking. Wife loved the 20s and 308 trucks. Wouldn't quit talking about them for 800 miles. Definitely will be back maybe with my grandson and granddaughter.

My son loves to look at all the old and restored trucks and guess what they were for (age 3.5). But it's so fun to see the grown men getting super excited too. The thing that would make this better is to have another room...More
