At the time we visited, they were between exhibits. What was there was great and informational. I especially liked the photos/information of the native americans.

Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Very affordable and lots to see for a smaller museum. If u have a little extra time, you will not be disappointed in your visit.

Was driving from Idaho Falls down to Salt Lake and had some time to kill, this museum provided me with a great experience just a couple minutes off the highway. The people were very friendly & helpful with any questions.

I love this museum because it is cheap but interesting. i believe it is worth the price of admission to learn a little bit about the biological history of idaho.

right on the Idaho State University Campus, local interest displays as well and traveling displays. Big Foot display was very unique and when they have the prehistoric display very educational

A small museum; still it has a little bit of all you can expect from a museum of natural history. If you are in the neighboorhood, don't miss this little gem. We especially enjoyed the spectacular exhibit on arrow heads.
