IOWA – If you’re looking for something fun and educational to do with your family this coming weekend, you may want to consider visiting a museum.

Governor Terry Branstad is declaring this week as Museum Week in Iowa. The goal is to bring attention to small town museums across the state, like the Kinney Pioneer Museum in Mason City.

“It gives people an idea of what the history of North Central Iowa is like. It also showcases some of the things we have in the museum,” said Richard Peterson, President of the Board of Trustees for the Kinney Pioneer Museum.

In honor of museum week, Kinney Pioneer Museum will have free admission this Saturday afternoon. They’re open from 1pm-5pm.
