Sioux City during the 1800s and early 1900s, approximately a 70-mile journey. Children can stop at the clothing closet and dress the part of historic travels. Then it’s play time as they climb and explore among a covered wagon, a boat, and even a Model T. Hands-on exploration isn’t only for the children’s museum. Coming soon (date is weatherdependent), visitors can experience historical buildings in an outdoor space known as Heritage Park. Looking for more of a structured experience? With programs like Feed Your Mind, Haunted Tours, Vintage Christmas, and Mardi Gras at The Mead, visitors can engage in experiences year-round. A new program that is worth a little extra attention is called Care of Collections at Home. In the basement of the MCEC, there is a Preservation and Training Laboratory where museum staff can teach program attendees how to preserve and care for historic items. The vision is that this space will one day be a training location for regional museum staff and volunteers to receive training on the preservation of historic pieces. Hopefully, you are already busy planning your trip to the Mead Cultural Education Center, but before you finalize your plans, you may want to check out the amazing opportunities for photo shoots at MCEC, or, if you are coming to town for a special day, like a wedding, or business travel for a meeting, the event spaces are unbeatable. This place is something special. Adventure, history, play, art, and mystery blend perfectly on the picturesque grounds of the Mead Cultural Education Center. mead cultural education center 52 mickelson drive, Yankton South Dakota Human Services Campus 605-665-7841 1104 West 8th Street • Yankton, SD 57078 www.YanktonMedicalClinic.com Regular Clinic Hours: M-F: 8 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Sat.: 8:30 a.m. - Noon ConvenientCare Hours: M-F: 5 - 9 p.m. Sat. & Sun.: Noon - 5 p.m. Pharmacy 605-665-2929 Pharmacy Hours: M-F: 8:30 a.m. - 9 p.m. Sat.: 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Sun.: Noon - 5 p.m. Ear, Nose & Throat 605-665-0062 2525 Fox Run Parkway, Suite 101 Yankton, SD 57078 Regular Clinic Hours: M-F: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. www.VisitYanktonSD.com | Yankton Visitors Guide | 31
