The State Historical Museum of Iowa has a variety of virtual offerings for our Goldie Kids Club members to enjoy the museum and historic artifacts from the comfort of their own homes.
Register below to join museum staff on Zoom for a virtual version of the popular "History Mystery" program. The new digital format allows young historians from across the state to examine artifacts and historic images to determine how they were used and who might have used them. Sign up today to become a history super sleuth!
This program is free to attend, but space is limited and advanced registration is required. Please register by 4 p.m. on the Friday before the program. While attending this virtual program, each child (recommended for ages 8-12) must be accompanied by an adult for its duration. Not a Goldie's Kids Club member? Join today!
