A must-see when in Iowa City. Museum does an excellent job with President Herbert “Bert” Hoover’s wife, Lou, not just the President. Be sure to catch the free short film on Hoover’s life. (April 2018)

One of the best Presidential Libraries. The museum does a great job of telling the story of Hoover's entire life- not just his presidency. I would highly recommend a visit here if in Iowa.

Really great museum and the park is beautiful. Museum exhibits are impartial and display both the good and bad opinions of Hoover and his presidency. Be sure and visit the gravesite near the back of the park.

A well spent $10. If you're a history buff, you'll love this place. The museum has so many things to say about the 31st president of the US. The exhibits are well thought of and very informative. The town (West Branch) itself is quite scenic and I enjoyed walking around the streets.

Very nicely laid out. Everything is in easy walking distance. Well informed and courteous staff. Right off the interstate in a typical, small Iowa town
