Say Cheese!

Volunteers needed for Labor Day Photo Shoot at The Iowa Children’s Museum

Does your child love to “cheese” for the camera? Want to enjoy a free morning of fun on your day off? We’re looking for kids and adults to be part of an upcoming photo shoot at The Iowa Children’s Museum.

The shoot will take place on Monday, September 4, 2023 (Labor Day), between 9:00 a.m. and noon while the museum is closed to the public. There’s no script to follow or poses to land—just come and have some fun!

Participating groups will play in the museum while we capture photo and video footage to be used in museum promotions. To say thanks, each participating group will receive a Family Day Pass to come back and play another day!
