Ice House Museum

Franklin Street West First Street
Cedar Falls, IA 50613


The Ice House Museum features an outstanding display of the items used in cutting, harvesting, storing, selling and the use of natural ice. The 600 square foot display area for tools and implements used to cut natural ice was completed in 1991. A large mural showing the Cedar River in winter forms the background for a "frozen" river where tools of the trade are displayed.

Blocks of "ice" are stacked as they would have been in the ice house with the tools used by the men who delivered ice to homes and businesses throughout the area.
