What's New At the Museum?

A thank you to everyone to picked up pumpkins and contributed generously to our museum. Unfortunately with the weather turning colder, we have to clean all of the pumpkins from our lot as soon as possible. The Pumpkins are now FREE, take as many as you want and take them soon. Thank you All.

A heartfelt thank you to the Ankeny John Deere Quality Group volunteers who did a fantastic fall cleaning of the porches and grounds of the Ankeny Area Historical Musem. A job well done and an example of community supporting community! Thank You John Deere.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Ankeny Area Historical Museum and any formal activities in regards to the museum are cancelled for the near future.  As Ankeny Schools are closed right now through April 12, the cancellations will be through that date and then reviewed as more information is received to determine future decisions.   John Stratton, President, AAHS
