The Museum of Idaho is a great place to take a family with small children. There are so many different activities to participate in for children. The current "Space" exhibit is great and we can't wait for the dinosaurs exhibit coming in 2018.

There is a very comprehensive exhibit on Space and Space Exploration here. Always an interesting topic. Additionally, I loved the exhibit room on the Village Improvement Society. It was amazing to see all the old quilts and other needlework made by women of Idaho Falls

This museum is extremely well managed. Temporary exhibits are always exciting. There's a directional flow, but it's not mandatory. It's perfect for young kids with a wide variety of attention spans. Especially, given that Idaho Falls is a relatively small town, it's impressive. The architecture...More
