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!
