Have you ever wondered what was hidden inside the African American Museum of Iowa? Visit us in NewBo District during National Tourism Week to see the back rooms usually used only by staff, including the museum's collections space, home to thousands of artifacts that tell Iowa history.
Curator Brianna Wright and Director of Education Michelle Poe will share artifacts too fragile to ever go on display and show you a little bit about how the museum magic happens. This is a rare opportunity for the general public to take a sneak peek behind the scenes.
