Western Iowa Tech Community College (WITCC) is excited to host the University of Iowa Mobile Museum on Thursday, September 7 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the college’s Sioux City campus in parking lot 2. The event is free and open to the public. This is the only time the mobile museum will be in Sioux City this year. The community is invited to stop by for a tour.
The University of Iowa Mobile Museum launched in 2014 as a partnership between the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development, the Office of the State Archaeologist, and the Pentacrest Museums. The Mobile Museum inspires visitors to understand the world by bringing exhibits with cutting-edge research, one-of-a-kind artifacts, and interactive digital media to Iowa’s communities statewide. This year features exhibits on Oneota archaeology, discoveries from Iowa’s ancient seas, and oral histories on Iowa’s changing workforce. Furthermore, the Sanford Museum and Planetarium from Cherokee Iowa will also be present with their archaeologist and geologist with activities for attendees.
