Sioux City Railroad Museum Working On Flood Recovery

Sioux City, Iowa — All of the buildings at the Sioux City Railroad Museum were flooded when the Big Sioux River went over a levee in the city’s Riverside neighborhood. That includes the Holocaust Rails exhibit which debuted in April of 2023 with photos and items from the Holocaust of World War Two.

One of the exhibit’s designers, Lou Ann Linblade, says they tried to take steps to protect it.

She says their work did help minimize some of the damage.

Linblade says the flooding has been tough on those who spent so much time getting the exhibit ready.

Linblade says they are determined to restore the exhibit and anyone can donate to help.

The Railroad Museum will be closed for now as they work to clean up and repair the flood damage.
