My boys (7 and 9-years old) and I spent 2 hours here one Saturday morning and had a really nice time. We attended a talk and got to meet a screech owl up close and personal - very cute! We also found a booklet and worked on a scavenger hunt which really kept my kids engaged and interested in the displays. A military discount would have been a nice added incentive to the place, but the woman working the front desk did pull out a coupon that she allowed us to use instead. This is a great place to spend a couple of hours while in Boise!
