Dust Bowl Exhibit & Activities

Explore the Dust Bowl

Come explore the Dirty 30s in our Temporary Gallery this Summer and see if you can escape our Dust Bowl Escape Room!

Temporary Gallery Exhibit: Kids from our Pioneer Camp in June created a wonderful interactive display of the Dust Bowl Days in Scott County with the aid of Theresa Beach who used a song written by her husband, Thad Beach, and the local 5th graders in 2010. The song, Nothin’ Fancy But We Had Enough, sings the history of life during the Black Blizzards of the 30s. Exhibits include eggs and chickens, a small general store for trading goods, a Dust Bowl quilt with interactive art and dialogue, a Dust Bowl Dinner Table, and a Dust Bowl Laundry Display. Visitors can interact and create throughout these creative history displays. Come and experience life in the Dirty 30s!

Dust Bowl Escape Room: Can you survive the Dust Bowl and escape from the 30s? Answer a series of questions to unlock each level and find the code to escape! Watch our calendar and FaceBook page to see when we offer this time travel experience!
