Star Trek Voyage Home Museum


Did you know this Iowa town is the future birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk? His 23rd century D.O.B. (March 22, 2228) is engraved in a stone monument located behind a hair salon. While they first claimed the Starship Enterprise captain in 1985, the museum didn't open its doors until 2008. It's since become a hub for Star Trek collectibles, home-built exhibits, and alternate history disputes.
