Guided Tours & Self Guided Tours

Peruse our artifact collection starting with the founding of our town. A self-guided museum tour of The McGregor Historical Museum allows visitors to peruse the collection independently. Guided group tours for students, class reunions, & family gatherings can be arranged by contacting the McGregor Historical Museum. Community history, maps and genealogical materials are also available upon request. 

What to Expect on Your Tour
During the tour, immerse yourself in our collection of historical artifacts representing frontier life in McGregor. We also have military memorabilia, a ferry display, hand-crafted Eddings archery, and period clothing, furniture, housewares, books and tools. Our can’t-miss exhibits include Andrew Clemens’ sand bottles, Emma Big Bear Holt’s baskets and Margery Goergen’s hand-colored photographs.

Our displays are set up as both self-guided and guided tours. Special tour arrangements can be made by contacting 563-873-2221 or by email
