The Nodaway Valley Museum will be closed from December 20 through February 1. We use this time for some much needed cleaning and display updates. Mark your calendar for Feb. 2nd as we will be starting our First Sunday Programs. Check later for news on the program. We want to thank everyone for your support over the last year as we look forward to next year.

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year

Don’t forget to thank our veterans 

Military Display

Our Page County, Iowa museum has it all -- a meteorite, 3-H and 4-H, Glenn Miller, genealogy research, a 1900 parlor, animal mounts, a 1944 POW camp, and more....

Your visit to the Nodaway Valley Historical Museum in Clarinda, Iowa can take you back more than a century when the Midwest was being developed with homes, farming, businesses and schools.
