UI Mobile Museum at Iowa Lakeside Lab


Wednesday, June 11, 2014 - 9:00am to 12:00pm


Iowa Lakeside Lab

The University of Iowa Mobile Museum will visit Iowa Lakeside Laboratory and will be open to the public from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, June 11, and from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, June 12.

The Mobile Museum features exhibits that focus on three very different eras in Iowa?s history.  Iowa?s Ice Age Giants explores the great mammals that roamed Iowa during the last ice age and their sudden extinction. The exhibit Iowa?s Ancient Agriculturalists tells the story of the Glenwood culture centered in the Loess Hills and their connections to the Iowa landscape through agriculture. Cornerstones focuses on the founding of Iowa and writing of its constitution, the building of the Old Capitol building, and the creation of the University of Iowa.

The Mobile Museum also includes an interactive digital wall that invites visitors to explore UI research and creativity.
