Imagine an encounter with giant dinosaurs, the fascination of seeing the actual artifacts of the first explorers to conquer the South Pole 100 years ago, or the allure of creatures that can create their own light. At the Museum of Idaho, you can surround yourself with these wonders of the world. The Museum of Idaho is the intermountain west’s premier museum in providing nationally and internationally acclaimed exhibits to the surrounding areas. Showcasing both traveling and permanent exhibits, we are dedicated to preserving and educating the public in the sciences, the humanities, and the natural and cultural history.


RACE TO THE END OF THE EARTH
Jan. 31 – Sep. 1, 2014

The Museum of Idaho is proud to be the 5th museum in the world to host this exhibition, which recounts one of the most stirring tales of Antarctic exploration. Filled with triumph and tragedy, this story chronicles the epic journey of two competing teams in their quest to be the first to reach the South Pole.


GLOW: LIVING LIGHTS
Sep. 26 – Nov. 29, 2014

Have you ever wondered how strange sea creatures light up the ocean? Or what makes a firefly glow? This family-friendly exhibition dives deep into the darkest corners of our earth to shed some light on this fascinating phenomena which allows creatures to produce light for communicating, camouflage, attracting prey, and for other reasons scientists still don’t understand.
