  • I found the museum to be very disappointing. It was small with very few displays. And what displays it did had, were dated and poorly presented. There was stuff animals just sitting on the floor....  more »
  • It's a very small museum, but they have interesting and interactive exhibits. There's also an area for children to experiment and learn.  more »
  • A wonderful place to learn about some of the history of Idaho. Always changing exhibits so if you go once you have to go back to see what is new. This museum supports much more then just a walk through museum. They are in the community teaching. They have the most extensive storage of artifacts safely stored for research and future use. The Team of People here are plain AMAZING! Very knowledgeable. Supporting our local resources like this is a good thing. :-)
  • I feel $3 a person would be fair. If you go with kids- be sure they want to stand by your side while you read.. the majority of the ‘museum’ is reading. A prior post read as 30 minutes- we were back at entrance in 15. Kids’ prize was as wasteful as a straw in California or a grocery bag in the ocean. Save your money for Bozeman, MT’s actual museum...
