The University of Iowa’s Museum of Natural History is a fun and educational way to spend an afternoon exploring the history of Iowa. Founded in 1858 and located in Macbride Hall, it is the oldest university museum west of the Mississippi River. The facility is open Tuesday through Sunday with varying hours, and admission is always free.
The museum holds regular events, which can be found on their website. Interested in volunteering? There’s a place for you!
