Join Goldie the Goldfinch on the first Saturday of every month to learn about Iowa history and solve some of its mysteries! Through hands-on activities, artifact examinations, exhibit tours and more, children (ages 8-12) and their families can explore the past… like never before.
“History Mystery” programs encourage participants to examine historic artifacts to determine how they were used and who might have used them.
“Innovative Iowans” programs involve interactive activities that connect history with STEAM education – science, technology, engineering, art and math.
All of the programs are free, but advance registration is required for the hour-long programs. Each child must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the program.
