Des Moines, Iowa – The State Historical Museum in Des Moines is taking its show on the road. Museum spokesperson Jeff Morgan says an exhibit called “Iowa History 101” will be touring the state.
The traveling exhibit will also feature artifacts from each of Iowa’s 99 counties. Morgan identified a couple of the items.
Another feature will be a 1928 record of the song “Sugar” featuring jazz musician and Davenport-native Bix Beiderbecke. Mike Wolfe, star of the television show “American Pickers,” took part in an event Tuesday to announce the new exhibit at Antique Archaeology in Le Claire.
The Iowa Historical Museum RV will start touring in the spring and admission will be free. EMC Insurance Group is the exhibit’s presenting sponsor.
