Here Are 10 Museums In Idaho That Will Rock Your World In All The Right Ways
Idaho has earned a reputation for being a state with a plethora of outdoor and recreation opportunities, but believe it or not, we also have some interesting things to do for the indoors-lover as well — or, just to fill in those empty summer days. A fantastic summer activity for kids, couples, or families is to explore Idaho’s incredible selection of museums.
That being said, with Idaho’s unique and diverse history in terms of its place on the Oregon Trail, Short Line, and of course a rich logging and mining past, you can find museum collections around just about every corner. Today, we’ve chosen just 10 of our state’s curated buildings. Ranging from quirky roadside attractions and massive historical museums, to collections found nowhere else in the country, here’s a list of Idaho’s best and most unique museums.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
