The University of Iowa’s mobile museum is bringing Iowa’s history to you.

The 38-foot-long, customer-built bus features exhibits from Iowa’s ice age giants to the writing of Iowa’s constitution. It starts traveling across the state this weekend.

The mobile museum a joint venture between the Office of the State Archaeologist, the Old Capitol Museum and the University of Iowa’s Museum of Natural History.

“The entire content can change every year, and so it’s designed to allow us to bring new insights and discoveries from the university and Iowa history and rotate those, so as we travel around the state every year, we’ll be able to refresh them and give people a new experience,” Dan Reed explains.

On Friday and Saturday it will appear in Fort Dodge at Iowa Central Community College 3-6:30 p.m. and 8 a.m. to 1:30 pm respectively.
