Dubuque County Historical Society/National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium

Dubuque, Iowa

Cause Description:
The Dubuque County Historical Society (DCHS) has its roots in the Richard Herrmann Museum of Natural History, established in the 1870s. The DCHS was formed in 1950 as a private, non-profit organization with a focus on oral and archival history; and it opened its first museum, the Mathias Ham House, in 1964. Over the past 25 years the DCHS has successfully raised $54 million to organize and expand its Mississippi River Museum into the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium. The Museum & Aquarium is accredited by the American Association of Museums — a distinction held by only 9 percent of American museums — and was named an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution in August 2002. The new river campus houses the William Woodward Discovery Center, the National Rivers Hall of Fame, the Fred W. Woodward Riverboat Museum, the Pfohl Boatyard, a wetland, and a refurbished train depot. The Dubuque County Historical Society and the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium serve hundreds of thousands of people annually through its exhibits and programs as well as through their on-site and outreach activities. Visitors come from all 50 states and more than 70 countries. All museum properties are accredited by the American Association of Museums. Mission Statement: To explore the life and the history of the Dubuque, Iowa, the Mississippi River plus all America's rivers and their global connections; and to research, interpret, educate and promote historical preservation and environmental conservation.
