On May 13, 2016 the museum hosted Grinnell-Newburg third graders and their teachers and parents.
The students toured the museum and carriage house, played traditional games, listened to Frank Heath play some old instruments, tried their hands at spinning yarn, and loaded a prairie wagon to be ready for a trip west.
