This museum provided excellent displays of Idaho black history. Phillip provided us with a great deal of information on history as well as the local area. We really enjoyed our visit and recommend it.

Small, but does have a fair amount of history in it. A little hard to access for wheelchairs. Not dissapointed, but also wouldn't rush back to see a second time

Yes, it's small but small doesn't mean it doesn't pack a lot of knowledge. Someone stated it's odd...nothing odd about dedicating to a certain people, without this museum I had no idea blacks contributed to Idaho. Great stop.

This was a nice little museum we visited in the park, the exhibits were interesting, but not very interactive. Probably would have been better for older kids than our under 10 crowd.
