The Herbert Hoover Museum

Herbert Hoover Museum Permanent Galleries

The Herbert Hoover Museum enables visitors to experience the many sides of Iowa's only President. The tour begins in a rotunda area with a 16 foot red granite map of the world and inserted in the floor are 57 brass sheaves of wheat - one in every nation where Hoover conducted relief efforts.

Move on the the exciting displays of the Australian outback, China at the turn of the century, a Belgian relief warehouse during the first World War, and the Inaugural Platform on March 4, 1929. Stop by the President's fishing cabin, and see a display of Mrs. Hoover's dresses. Then visit suite 31A at the Waldorf Towers where Mr. Hoover spent the last years of his life.
