Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 10:00am | University of Iowa Museum of Natural History

Connect (or reconnect) with your sense of wonder at the Museum of Natural History this summer. A free, drop-in welcome, fam-friendly, summer-fun program designed with elementary and jr. high students in mind, but suitable for all-ages! We know summers are long when your kiddos aren't in school–we've got your back, parents! Mornings @ The Museum are a perfect way to keep busy (with the TV off), learn cool stuff, and stay cool! Each event will feature a different theme with an activity.

Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 5:00pm | University of Iowa Museum of Natural History

Experienced, aspiring, and amateur writers alike: this summer, make our museums your muse.

Join us in one of our magical gallery spaces after-hours with other writers in your community. We think our museum is one of the best places to write in town; evoking curiosity and wonder while remaining quiet and of course, climate-controlled (Phew! Summer in Iowa, right?). Work on a project you've been needing a reason to revisit or begin something totally new. All genres, all subjects–we got you.
