Mobile Museum on Campus

Iowa State is the next stop for the State Historical Museum of Iowa’s “Mobile Museum”. The museum is going to be on campus outside of Parks Library March 27th from 3p.m.-5p.m. and March 28th through March 31st from 8a.m.-5p.m. You can stop by anytime between those hours for a free tour.

The “Iowa History 101″ museum is a 38-foot, custom-built Winnebago that travels the state’s highways and back roads to share stories all across Iowa. The museum contains nearly 50 artifacts including a 1917 prototype of the state flag designed by Dixie Cornell Gebhardt of Knoxville, an Olympic medal from sprinter Natasha Kaiser-Brown of Des Moines, and much more.

The traveling mobile museum will visit all 99 Iowa counties over the course of three years. The museum also features interactive hands-on galleries for children.

Stop by Parks Library anytime this week to get a look at some of Iowa’s history.
