Southeast Iowa Museum CrawlWritten by Theresa Rose on May 27, 2015
Celebrate Iowa Museum Week with a trip back through time. The second annual Southeast Iowa Museum Crawl, which will take place June 13, is just the place to do that. Participating museums have agreed to be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and promise to fill your mind and imagination with days gone by.
Featured stops for this event include The Johnny Clock Museum in Lockridge, Carnegie Historical Museum in Fairfield, Pioneer Historical Society Museum in Farmington, and Morris Memorial Park in Stockport. Each of these stops will have family friendly activities taking place that will engage the young and old alike. You will be able to participate in a museum treasure hunt, have photos taken in vintage clothing, participate in a checkers tournament, and witness the art of woodcarving.
Information about the museums, maps to the locations, and details of the event may be found at http://museumcrawl.weebly.com/
This project was made possible through the local efforts of many historians and history enthusiasts as well as the Historic Hills Scenic Byway, in conjunction with Governor declared Iowa Museum Week.
