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.

Needs some updating, other than that a nice place to visit. Especially history buffs and those learning about our states history, and the environment.

This Museum of Natural History has everything from dinosaurs to Big Foot! It is really beautifully displayed and easy to see and understand. Kids would like it too! The campus is beautiful with plenty of parking, just off the freeway and the main road (5th/Yellowstone).
