Adult Program Offerings

These programs have been developed by our curators specifically for our adult visitors to learn more about how and why museums collect artifacts and care for them.  Each program lasts approximately 45 minutes and includes a presentation, plus time for Q & A, and most include museum artifacts from our collection which are not on display.    

Below you will find a current list of programs which can be scheduled for your group.

For more information please contact Visitor Services Associate, Christie Mosier at 563-336-7297 or by email.
