The State Historical Museum of Iowa traveling display about the Iowa caucuses will be at Morningside College’s Hickman-Johnson-Furrow Learning Center Jan. 30 through Feb. 13.

The “First in the Nation” display explores the history of the Iowa caucuses from 1972 to 2012 through images and film clips from past caucuses as well as a selection of historical caucus artifacts from the State Historical Museum of Iowa’s extensive political collection.

The traveling display also makes the case for why Iowa is positioned to hold the nation’s first caucuses and looks at the state’s success in picking candidates who go on to secure their party’s nomination and win the presidency.

The Hickman-Johnson-Furrow Learning Center is open from 7:30 a.m. to midnight Mondays through Thursdays; 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays; 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays; and 1 p.m. to midnight on Sundays.
