Rocket Camp is a wonderful opportunity for the children in our community and their families. I felt that it enriched my family especially on lift off day. It was inspiring to see such a diverse group of kids working together, having so much fun and helping each other. The teachers were great and as a grandparent I felt comfortable contacting Jordan if I had any questions. On lift off day, it was amazing to see parents and grandparents as excited as the kids to watch as every rocket launched. And together, we would shout as a group, 3, 2, 1, lift off; as the student pressed the button. I think it was one of the coolest things I've ever participated in and I was just a spectator! Thank you Grout Museum!

Established in 1932, the Grout Museum District is widely acknowledged as one of the cornerstones of culture in Northeast Iowa. Accredited by the American Association of Museums, the Grout Museum District includes five distinct properties:
The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum honors the service and sacrifice of all Iowa veterans from the Civil War to present.
Permanent and continually changing exhibitions of area history, regional flora and fauna.
This hands-on science center makes learning scientific principles fun through interactive exhibits and formal demonstrations.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Russell House is often cited as Iowa's finest example of Italianate architecture.
The culturally and historically rich Snowden House is available for rent. Its charming Victorian Italianate exterior adds elegance to any event.
