Not too big but it's worth going. Friendly staff and it supports local artists. Loved the sculpture garden. Was light and mellow. Go with a calm state.

There were a few interesting pieces, and the sculpture garden was well done, but otherwise this art museum might be missing the mark. If you are into modern art, you might enjoy it. This should be named the Boise Museum of Modern Art.

Nice, well done smaller museum well worth the visit. Heavy on local art. They also seem to have many exhibits tailored for younger ages.

Sorry for breaking the secret of the kids place, I love bringing our children here when the weather is either gloomy, rainy or snowy. The exhibits are wonderful, varied and quite magical for a small city. Being spoiled at MOMA or other modern museum, proud...More
