Museums: Des Moines

The newest Wells Fargo History Museum located in downtown Des Moines highlights the role Iowa played connecting the nation, from trails west to stagecoach lines and railroads. Iowa and Iowans also helped shape financial connections we know today, including banking, credit, and mortgage.

Exhibits Include

Exhibits include an authentic Concord stagecoach, Wells Fargo treasure box, gold and money, historic banking machines, and a Wells Fargo wagon like that made famous in native-Iowan Meredith Willson’s play The Music Man.
