4: Iowa Masonic Library and Museum
The building itself is a work of art, and inside you will find that the Iowa Masonic Library and Museum is quite possibly the best collection of masonic works in the world. Marble walls encase you with intricate metal work, accenting the masonic works housed within. You will find over 100,000 books on masonry and historic content. The museum contains many rare artifacts from American colonial days, Egyptian history, Samurais, and more. Even if you have no heritage that connects you to masonry, it is still a must-see destination.
