Summer Shorts (offsite program)

An event every week that begins at 1:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until July 29, 2021
The Iowa Children’s Museum is heading outside and coming to a park near you! Join us each Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday as we provide hands-on fun in nearby outdoor spaces. Summer Shorts provides a few short hours of fun and inspires you to PLAY all summer long. Each week, we will bring activities to the park based on a certain theme. Not just for kids, this series will make the whole family smile!
