September 11

Make your reservations for architect-guided walking tours of downtown Des Moines! These tours, sponsored by Kum & Go, provide an opportunity for local residents and visitors alike to appreciate the rich architectural heritage of Iowa’s capital city. 

In respect to your health and that of our guides, we will enforce social distancing at sign-in and during tours. We will limit tour groups to 10. Guides will wear wireless microphones/speakers and face shields so you can hear the tour. Please show your respect for others on the tours by wearing a mask so everyone will be safe.

Tours cover both contemporary and historic architecture. You will learn about architectural detail, style and elements, along with intriguing facts and the historical significance of the buildings that shape the downtown skyline. Because of current health concerns, the tours WILL NOT include wine and snacks as in previous years. We hope you understand. Sign in starts at 5 PM, outside of the Iowa Center for Architecture, Capital Square at 400 Locust Street or in inclement weather, inside Capital Square. The tours take off at 5:30 PM.

Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing.
