Visit the Iconic Blanden Art Museum in the Historic Oak Hill District

Located within two miles of the hotel and at the heart of Fort Dodge's cultural hub, the Blanden Memorial Art Museum boasts thousands of pieces representing American, European, and Japanese art. Home to a permanent collection of modernist sculptures and paintings, as well as prints and contemporary works by Iowa artists, the museum's building is its own historic piece of neo-classical architecture. Check out the unique galleries and rotating exhibitions, stop by the gift shop for handmade pieces and museum memorabilia, or attend an art workshop.
