And on Saturday, August 20th,  history buffs have a reason to stop by too. The Carnegie-Stout Public Library and Dubuque Farmers’ Market have partnered to bring the State Historical Society of Iowa’s mobile museum to Dubuque. The 300 square foot museum is housed in a custom-built, Iowa-made Winnebago that will be parked at the Dubuque Farmers’ Market on Saturday, August 20, from 7 a.m.-Noon. The mobile museum is free and open to the public.

The exhibit, “Iowa History 101: People and Places,” displays artifacts from the State Historical Society of Iowa that cover 13,000 years of Iowa’s remarkable history. Visitors will experience stories from the earliest people to call this state home to today and learn more about Iowa's unique people and places.

The mission of the Carnegie-Stout Public Library is to improve the quality of life by providing resources for individual enjoyment, enlightenment, and knowledge, enhancing youth's literacy. Learn more at

Dubuque's Riverview Park Provides Spectacular Views & Affordable Camping

Life along the Mississippi River remains as Twain described it 139 years ago. While the river and the towns lining its bank may be tamer today than in Twain's time, there remains a calming allure to resting on the riverbank and watching it flow. 

Dubuque's City-owned and operated 20-acre Miller Riverview Park and Campground is one of the best places to relax and enjoy the mighty Mississippi.
