If you enjoy history, beautiful old buildings, or just like Iowa, this is a great spot to visit. You'll see the restored chambers where the Iowa legislature once convened. It's quite lovely. Hours are limited.
Restored to reflect the years it served as the last capitol of the Iowa Territory (1842-1846), the first State Capitol building (1846-1857) and The University of Iowa’s first building. Self-guided tour and changing exhibition galleries reflect Iowa’s history, culture and heritage.
Iowa City was the capitol of Iowa until 1857. Interested in learning more? Here's the place. Next door is MacBride Hall, which houses the Natural History Museum.

“"The 'Burg" is a local landmark. Plenty of politicians have eaten here on the campaign trail. There are photos of Reagan, Obama, Clinton and more who have stumped here. Ask your server who sat where. Or just look at the many memorabilia from celebrities and politicos. Vote in the Coffee Bean Caucus when you eat there during the run-up to an election. This restaurant even has a book written about it, as it's been the hangout for many a writer from the famed Iowa Writers Workshop. Breakfast served all day, along with the famous pie shake talked about by Scott Simon on NPR.”
