The Old Capitol Museum at The University of Iowa is hosting a new children’s program called “Night at Old Cap” starting Thursday, Sept. 15, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the museum’s Hanson Family Humanities Gallery and the Discovery Center. This free public program caters to children age 4 and older.
The first installment of this series will be “Life on the Prairie,” exploring what life was like at home and at school for children living the 19th century. Participants will make a slate board to take home. The program is offered in conjunction with the current exhibit at the Old Capitol Museum, Life and Death on the Prairie.
