Move It! Dig It! Do It!

Move it! Dig it! Do it! is back for another year of educational, fun-filled activities focused on big equipment that MOVES.

Grab your hard hat and take an up-close look at large construction and farming equipment, big trucks, and emergency vehicles! This year, families will walk along a designated route to assist with social distancing and make pit stops for games and activities.

Admission is FREE for all  outdoor activities. To maintain our reduced capacity limits, admission inside The Iowa Children’s Museum will still require purchasing tickets online and in advance. Click here reserve your playtime.

Masks are encouraged for all attendees. To ensure everyone can play safely, please enter at the welcome tent near the museum and follow the one-way route through all of our vehicles and activities.
