Iowa is full of colorful characters! Meet a few each month when a team member from the State Historical Museum of Iowa reads a short story, and then stick around to participate in a hands-on activity, explore an exhibit or grab a snack upstairs at Cafe Baratta’s. The half-hour programs are recommended for young historians (ages 3-7) who are accompanied by an adult.
