In the town where she was born and raised, Donna Reed has a museum dedicated to preserving her memory and the lives and achievements of all Iowans. The museum showcases many of Donna's awards and honors, as well as personal letters from Donna's pen pal of 48 years, Violet Lindsay.


Exhibits showcase treasures from Donna's life as an actress, such as original scripts notated by Donna, vintage costumes, movie posters, Donna's personal scrapbooks, and much more about Donna and her native Iowa.  Current work of the museum includes a focus on preservation, organization, and archiving of contributed materials from across the nation.
