We love tour groups!

The Boone County Historical Society enjoys hosting group tours of all sorts. From scout troops to tour buses and antique car clubs, we can accommodate a variety of groups.


Currently, all of our museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When we reopen, tours should be arranged well in advance. Contact us at info@bchsiowa.org or call 515-432-1907 and leave a message. Since the Center is not staffed regularly, emailed questions get answered more quickly.
