Iowans share a fascination with being Iowan. But what does it really mean to be Iowan? Iowa History 101 explores the history of Iowans at home, work and play – and how that shapes who we are today. Like a visit to your grandparents’ attic, this exhibition unpacks the stories of Iowa’s past with dozens of artifacts from the State Historical Museum of Iowa’s collection.
The Iowa History 101 mobile museum is part of a trio of new exhibitions that digs into the bedrock stories that every Iowan should know.
On Tuesday, November 14, you are invited to join Museum Educator Jessica Rundlett to learn about the Iowa Culture mobile app, a way to explore over 3,500 Iowa arts, history and culture sites from the comfort of home. Following a short presentation, attendees will play Iowa trivia and learn about unique sites all across the state! The free program will be held from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the South Hamilton Elementary School Library. History on the Move: Iowa History 101 will be open for visitors before the program, from 5:00-6:00 p.m., and immediately after the program until 7:30 p.m.
