Iowa Things to Do: 97 reviews and 154 photos


If you are a John Wayne fan. You will find this place interesting.
It is his place of birth, and lived here till he was bout 9 yrs old.
It has a lot of memorabilia of his movie career. Plus furniture from his time period while in the home.
There is a small fee and you get a tour guide, plus there is a good size gift shop.
Not being a western movie fan, I even found this interesting.

Address: 224 S. 2nd. St. Winterset, Iowa
Directions: Just find Winterset, there are many signs to his house.
Phone: 515-462-1044
