Sweet Vale of Avoca Museum

The Sweet Vale of Avoca Museum features a variety of displays that include Native American artifacts, farm and kitchen items, clothing items, old quilts, school items, a 1925 Chevy, and so much more! The museum stands as a monument to “Our Heritage of the Past, Our Labors of the Present, and Our Legacy to the future.”

A significant feature in the museum is a collection of more than 75 mounted heads and animals from all over the world. The animals were donated by a local retired veterinarian Dr. Roy Schultz. Of particular interest are the musk ox and arctic wolf!

The museum also features a 1925 time capsule from the old Avoca School, which gives you a glimpse into what life was like in the small town of Avoca in the mid-20s. The Research Area has numerous binders related to Avoca’s community history and the people who live or have lived there.

The Sweet Vale of Avoca Museum is open on the weekends from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., Memorial Day through Labor Day. The museum is open on the third Sunday of the month during the off-season. Visits can be arranged at other times by calling Barb at (712) 343-2173, Mary at (712) 307-6279, or Sandy at (712) 343-2578. For more information, visit their website!
