Excellent smaller venue with main stream rotating exhibits as well as a permanent hands-on exhibit about the west. A great way to spend a few hours. Highly recommend.

The Museum of Idaho is a great place to take a family with small children. There are so many different activities to participate in for children. The current "Space" exhibit is great and we can't wait for the dinosaurs exhibit coming in 2018.
