Iowa 80 Trucking Museum, Walcott, Iowa

The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum was a dream of Iowa 80 Truckstop founder, Bill Moon. Bill had a passion for collecting antique trucks and other trucking memorabilia. We are pleased to be able to share this collection with the general public. Every truck has a story to tell and can provide a unique glimpse back in time. Many rare and one-of-a-kind trucks are on display. View short films about trucking history in our REO theater; a great way to learn even more about the trucks of yesteryear.

Accessibility Notes

The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum is owned by the Moon Family who reside in the Quad Cities Area. Iowa 80 Truckstop founder Bill Moon, loved everything about trucks and trucking.  He collected over 100 antique trucks and trailers, hundreds of vintage gas, trucking and oil signs, old gas pumps and other Petroliana items.  Bill saved many of these trucks from the scrapyard and was instrumental in preserving and important piece of our transportation history. Many of these trucks are rare, some are one-of-a-kind or the only one known to still exist. It was always his dream to build a museum.  In 2004, 12 years after his passing, his family fulfilled that dream and opened the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum.
