The Floyd County Historical Museum is hosting an open house this Saturday (05.08) with free admission.
The museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to give visitors a chance to see new features including a redesigned gift shop and several reconfigured exhibits. The Charles City Railroad Club will have trains running in the model railroad room and information will be available on the museum’s Junior Historians’ summer education programs with offerings for all grade levels.
With more than 50,000 artifacts depicting early and recent prairie life, both agricultural and industrial, the museum is one of the Midwest’s largest rural county museums and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In 1999, the museum opened its climate-controlled exhibit area featuring historic farm tractors, implements and tools from the last century.
