Southeast Iowa Museum Crawl Saturday

Jun 11, 2018

Celebrate Iowa Museum Week with a trip back through time. The fifth annual Southeast Iowa Museum Crawl, which will take place Saturday, is just the place to do that. Participating museums will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and promise to fill your mind and imagination with days gone by at this free event.

Featured stops for this event include Monroe County Historical Museum in Albia, Wabash Depot Museum Complex, Moravia, Appanoose County Historical & Coal Mining Museum in Centerville, and Moulton Historical Museum, Moulton. Each of these stops will have family friendly activities taking place that will engage the young and old alike. There will be rug weaving demonstrations, one room schoolhouse games, and the opportunity to learn about rodeo life from a professional cowboy. You can also make Moravian stars and enjoy ethic food samples.

Information about the museums, maps to the locations, and details of the event can be found at http://pathfindersrcd.org/museumcrawl.
