Iowa 80 Trucking Museum Offers Free Tours for Area Schools
WALCOTT, IOWA — The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum is pleased to offer Quad City Area schools the opportunity to learn more about trucking history through free guided tours. “We understand that all of the school districts on both sides of the river are struggling with budget issues and many have been forced to cut field trips. We felt it was important to inform the schools and general public that we offer guided tours for groups free of charge,” says Dave Meier, museum curator.
The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum has also launched a “Teacher Tools” feature in the Education section on its website that gives teachers additional ideas on how to incorporate social studies and math into their visit, as well as suggestions for post visit classroom activities. The section is written for grades K-5.
The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum is located next to the Iowa 80 Truckstop in Walcott, Iowa and is open Wednesday – Saturday from 9am-5pm and Sunday Noon – 5pm. Schools may schedule tours by calling the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum at 563-468-5500 or online at www.iowa80truckingmuseum.com/education.
