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.

Considering the size of Idaho Falls, this is a very good museum. It has different exhibits throughout the year and special events. The local history portions are also well done and interesting.

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.

There was a traveling exhibit on space travel when we were there. While I found some of the information interesting, there wasn't too much 'new' to learn for me. Kids, of course, would be different! I wasn't pleased with the lay out of the exhibit...More
