A wing of our Victorian Home, this space houses our exhibition galleries, library and archives, collection storage, and offices as well as the internationally renowned Lenoir Model Railroad Collection.

Each year, we feature a changing exhibition that tells the stories of Cedar Falls.

February 25 - December 4, 2016

From the late 1800s to the present day, inventors in Cedar Falls have patented everything from bed springs to excavators in their efforts to make life more comfortable and productive. View original drawings and reproduction models, try hands-on tinkering, and learn about locally-made inventions that are both interesting and amusing.
