Museum of Idaho in Idaho Falls

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, the museum is dedicated to preserving and educating the public in the sciences, the humanities, and the natural and cultural history.

In Eagle Rock, USA, peer into a one-room schoolhouse and shops as they appeared in the late 19th century when Eagle Rock (now Idaho Falls) was a dusty frontier town. The exhibit also covers the region’s native inhabitants, explorers like Lewis and Clark and characters like Dugout Dick, who made and lived in cave homes on public land from 1948- 2010.
