The special display of the 150 years of Idaho history was complete and very well done. That alone is worth a trip to the museum.

I love museums and I love history but I was still really surprised how much I enjoy this museum. They had quite a variety of topics; geology (would have liked more of that), Native Americans (needed more time as it was fairly extensive), pioneer life, as well as Basque and Chinese and other immigrants. Much more than you see sometimes for a small city, it was a very impressive Museum. Loved the special Boise 150 exhibit. I brought my mother who uses a walker and it was very easy to get around and use the elevator between floors. We took 2 hours but really needed 3.

We came for an afternoon visit on a Saturday. As a kid I loved this museum for the saloon area, and the two headed calf--it's still there! The old familiar exhibits looked better than ever and the new "Essential Idaho" exhibit was really interesting. What a great way to spend an hour or two!

I knew Boise and Idaho had a colorful past, but this trip was awesome. We will visit again during the week when school is still in session.

If you want to learn about the history of Idaho and its cultural diversity, this is the place. Well-designed exhibits take you from prehistoric times to the present.
