DuMA and Heritage Works partner to present a series of walking tours of Dubuque architecture.
Walk and Talk and Ale and Architecture will provide insights into Dubuque’s historic buildings.
Walk and Talk are 45-60 minute lunchtime tours in downtown Dubuque including the Historic Federal Building, the Roshek building, US Bank and the Grand Opera House. Tours will focus on form and function with interior/exterior interpretation.
Ale and Architecture consists of 90-120 minute walking tours of bars in the historic upper and lower Main Streets.
