Welcome to the Pentacrest Museums
Please use the accessible south entrance. The south door remains locked but will be opened promptly for guests who ring the bell during open museum hours. Thank you and please pardon the inconvenience.
The University of Iowa Pentacrest Museums feature both permanent and changing exhibits, educational programming, historic research collections care, and special events at the Old Capitol Museum and the Museum of Natural History.
We serve to strengthen the vital role of both Museums in the educational, research, and engagement missions of the University, enhancing the campus-wide focus on cultural and environmental diversity.
