Immerse yourself in the Museum of Idaho. This is the perfect place to learn about historic Idaho Falls real estate, to spend an afternoon expanding your mind. With both exhibits and interactive events, the Museum creates many learning opportunities for the community. Permanent exhibits include Eagle Rock, the Local Idaho History Room and the Children’s Discovery Room.
The Eagle Rock display showcases replicas of what commercial Idaho Falls real estate would look like in the late 1800’s. There are 10 storefront windows to gaze into and imagine former times, including a blacksmith’s barn, carpenter shop and doctor’s office. In the Idaho History Room check out the town’s rustic school house and marvel at the contrast between past and future. Lewis and Clark memorabilia and a genuine buffalo hide tipi can also be found here. Geographical 3D displays of Idaho’s contrasting landscape set the scene in the Children’s Discovery Room. Designed to engage curious young minds and active little bodies, kids can crawl through a bear cave or beaver dam and explore a pioneer cabin.
Children living in Idaho Falls and its surrounding areas can also attend special events at the Museum. Meet A Scientist and Discovery Days both occur on a regular basis and feature interactive learning. See the Museum of Idaho for more details in planning your day and a description of current exhibits.
