Historic Valley Junction


Historic Valley Junction will serve as an historic link to West Des Moines’ past and as a fun, shopping district in the present and future. The integrity of individual properties will be protected and appreciated. Consistent and professional promotion of the district’s variety of businesses will enhance its small town feel.

A great stop for out-of-towners or locals alike. One of the few museums in town. It's small but has a good offering of exhibits showcasing the history of Des Moines and Iowa. Worth the price for an afternoon of learning.

Pretty cool experience for those who want a little blast from the past. Gets old after going multiple times.
