Have A Steamy Time At The Circus
A brand-new exhibit is coming to the German American Heritage Center & Museum this weekend!
“Steam Circus: The Colorful World of Carousels” is heading to the German American Heritage Center & Museum (712 W 2nd St Davenport) this Sunday May 27 from 12-4 p.m. and every Sunday thereafter through Oct 21!
The exhibit will feature beautiful pieces of art, history, and everyone’s favorite, carousel horses, crafted by the world renowned Dentzel Company and Charles Looff Company, on loan from the Merry-Go-Round museum in Sandusky, Ohio. Learn about the mixture of old world craftsmanship and new world technology and engineering. From military origins, to the creation and popularization of theme parks, discover how German Immigrants brought their talents and crafted masterpieces for the sake of entertainment.
