University of Iowa's Mobile Museum coming to Luther campus

A 38-foot RV to exhibit Iowa's natural history

The University of Iowa Mobile Museum will travel to the Luther campus on Saturday, May 3. The museum will be open to the public and located in the Preus Library parking lot from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Mobile Museum, a 38-foot, custom-built RV, features three exhibits. Visitors can learn about the founding of Iowa's history which includes an interactive digital wall that invites visitors to explore the University of Iowa's research and creativity; "Iowa's Ancient Agriculturalists" an exhibit that tells the story of the Glenwood culture that centered in the Loess Hills of Western Iowa more than seven centuries ago; and "Ice Age Giants," an exhibit that features a collection of Iowa's fossils.

The Mobile Museum is the product of the collaboration between the Office of the State Archaeologist, the Old Capitol Museum and the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History. For more information on the Mobile Museum visit or email [email protected].
