Pentacrest Museums Grand Re-Opening

It's our Grand Re-Opening event and you're invited! In a celebration of our community’s resiliency and all we accomplished in our galleries, exhibits, and behind-the-scenes while you were away, we welcome you back to explore in a fun-filled day: 

  • Special games/activities for prizes at the Museum of Natural History
  • Free tours at Old Capitol Museum
  • Swag giveaways
  • Debut of Lions exhibition in Mammal Hall
  • Reveal of updated Glaciers exhibit in Iowa Hall
  • And MORE!

We missed you during the pandemic and we know school is just around the corner. Let's celebrate the in-between time and gather in exploration!

Start in Iowa Hall where you & your group will receive your Museum Passport: your guide through the Museum of Natural History adventures. Collect stamps and for prizes! Head over to Old Cap anytime between 10-2 for a free tour and more goodies! 

We are following all COVID-related guidance from The University of Iowa and ask our visitors do the same. Please visit Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) | The University of Iowa (uiowa.edu) for the latest.
