Yesterday’s Memories and Truck Museum is the one museum that you need to visit in Iowa. I have lived in Iowa all of my life and recently learned that this museum existed. How could this be?
*Thank you to Tour O’Brien County Tourism for hosting me and showcasing their county to me.
You can find this treasure in the small town of Sanborn, Iowa, right off of US Highway 18. If you enjoy any types of collections, you will find your time well spent at Yesterday’s Memories & Truck Museum in Sanborn, Iowa.
Trucks On Display At Yesterday’s Memories
With thousands of items on display, you will admire the beautiful trucks and cars that line the buildings. Yes, I said buildings, not building. The best way I can show you what this incredible attraction offers is to show you what I found. You can plan to spend hours visiting Yesterday’s Memories & Truck Museum, as there is so much to see.
As you can see, this museum is immaculately clean, and the trucks are incredible. I fell in love with this Yellowstone Park Transportation vehicle. If you have ever taken a tour in a national park, this vehicle will inspire you to start planning your next visit to a national park. Imagine yourself exploring Yellowstone National Park while riding in one of these cars. A few bumps here and there would provide memories of a lifetime.
