Come learn about German immigration to Iowa and their impact on our state.

One third of Iowans claim German heritage, far more than any other ethnic group. Faculty and students at the UI have carefully researched the lasting influence of German culture in Iowa. Discover why German immigrants flocked to our state between 1850 and 1950 and the influence they’ve had on Iowa’s history. Experience how perception of German-Americans and German culture shifted during the First and Second World Wars through stunning propaganda posters, and see how this culture persisted in the face of shifting political winds. You can also learn more about the project at
The German American Heritage Center is open on Tuesdays-Saturdays 10-4 and on Sundays from 12-4; closed on Mondays. For more information on current exhibitions and connected programming please call 563-322-8844, visit our website at and like us on Facebook.
